Great gun. My husband loves it and so do I. I bought this in a 40 and really enjoy taking it to the range. The gun never jams or fails. If I had to find fault it would be size. He wanted the gun for everyday carry but decided it\'s a bit heavy.

Purchased this gun around 4 years ago. Buds had the best price and the purchase went very smoothly. As for the gun itself I have mixed feelings: Pros: 1- Rotating barrel locking system supposedly increases accuracy. The theory sounds good and It's an interesting design. I like it. 2- Easiest pistol I've ever field stripped. 3- Very mild recoil. 4- Accurate. 5- Thick but comfortable grip. 6- Value. Cons: 1- The slide is steel with a glossy black applied finish which has been very durable. The frame is aluminum with a flat black anodized finish. It has not been durable as it is easily scratched. Stoeger should have used the same finish on the frame that was used on the slide. It would look better too. 2- The slide to frame fit seems excessively loose. I contacted Stoeger but decided not to spend the money to ship it to them to have it checked. Their customer service didn't inspire much confidence and the looseness doesn't seem to affect accuracy. 3- This is personal preference but I prefer the safety to be frame not slide mounted. 4- This isn't really a con but I found this gun does not like the slide to be lubricated with gun grease. The slide failed to lock back when the mag emptied when I used grease, even though I used a very small amount. I have used oil ever since without issue. Overall I like the uniqueness of this gun and the way it shoots. I would prefer a more uniform/durable finish and a better slide to frame fit. I'd probably still make the purchase again - it's a very economical pistol and fun to shoot.

Buds is awesome, the communication was good and shipping was fast. The Stoeger Cougar 8040 came in great condition. However, one of the two magazines it came with seemed well used and had some rust on it. Not Buds fault, I'm happy with my purchase none the less. Thanks Buds!

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.
