A new affordable semiauto loading pistol joins the Stoeger family. Called the Cougar, this double-action pistol is available in either 40 Smith & Wesson or 9mm Parabellum. The Cougar features a barrel that rotates to lock with the slide, providing greater strength and accuracy. The barrels are cold hammer-forged and the bores are hard chrome-lined for exceptional strength and durability.
Other features include rounded edges for snag-free drawing, removable front sight, matte black finish, ambidextrous safety, and combat-style trigger guard. Incorporating the finest technology and maintaining proven semiauto features, the Cougar is a light, compact and reliable pistol. The Cougar comes with two high-capacity magazines—the .40 Smith & Wesson magazine holds 10 rounds and the 9mm magazine takes 15 rounds.
“Accuracy reliability and manageable recoil makes the Cougar a perfect choice for home defense, or for shooting targets. At a price of $349 the Cougar embodies the kind of affordable value that you can stake your life on,” said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli’s VP of Marketing & Communications.
