Stoeger has decided not to sell this pistol anymore with a hard plastic case. They changed the guide rod back to plastic (not that plastic doesn't work but i prefer all steel/alloy pistols).

Fit and Finish is okay. The Bruniton finish, which is suppose to be stronger than Bluing, came chipped in a couple of places. the magazines look straight up used and abused. The fitment of the machined parts are okay, the gun clanks and rattles and there's about a 1/32nd gap between the slide rails and slide. It's no Beretta!

As far as shooting....
Its a good shooter and so far been reliable but with the amount of play, I believe the pistol will wear out quickly. We will have to wait and see.

Bought this Gun and I Love It! It's form fitting to my hand, Shoots with very little recoil and the Grouping wasn't tight but maybe because I am not a Marx-man. The clip spring is very tight and hard to load a full magazine. I am very happy with this 40-Cal and possibly gonna buy this same model in a 9MM.

I haven't had the opportunity to get it to the range, but initial impressions are just as I thought after reading a couple of magazine reviews. Fits my hand very well. Very easy to field strip. If there's one complaint, it's that the magazine spring must have come from a '59 Pontiac! Forget loading it with your thumb and fingers. I managed to get 5 rounds in and that was it. If you order this handgun and you don't already have one, get one of the "helpers".

Bud's people are great! Emails at every movement. Couldn't have a better transaction. I've never purchase a firearm this way, but it was non eventful. My transfer point was just as nice as could be. Everything went so well, I also ordered a Ruger P95. Thanks to Bud's people for a very pleasant buying experience.

I did a lot of product research on the Stoeger Cougar .40 before making a purchase. The customer reviews are high and the pricepoint was nice. The gun feels solid as you first take it out of the case. A bit of grease on it from packing, but no big deal to clean off. I used Bud's layaway process and it was flawless. It took a few days for each check to clear, but no problems. Bud's sent me emails on the progress of the shipping and I received a call from my FFL dealer when it arrived. The Cougar shot on target right out of the box. Nice grouping from 15-20 feet away. The gun is so solid that there isn't much recoil compared to my old polymer Sigma .40. I am very happy that I sold the Sigma and purchased this .40 instead. The Cougar is an outstanding gun. I have shot over 100 rounds of federal ammo with no issues. The handle has girth, but I don't consider myself a person with large hands. It feels comfortable and shoots straight out of the box. Holsters aren't easy to come by but I'm not using it as my concealed carry so it isn't a concern. I recommend this gun and will consider buying the compact version as well. I will definitely go through Bud's again. They have great prices and even better service!

Stoeger makes an excellent handgun. I have the Couggar model 40 cal and 45 cal and will be getting the 9mm. An excellent spot on weapon, easy CCW and as for the sights, one of the best target aquisition I have ever seen. I highly recommend this weapon.

EXCELLENT service from BUDS as usual, if you are going to buy a gun online do not waste yout time with other websites, BUDS customer service and timely responsiveness to your concerns is second to none. Thanks BUDS!
