Stoeger Cougar


The Stoeger Cougar double-action, auto-loading pistol is a perfect choice for defense, with no-nonsense, rugged performance you can rely on when it matters most.

Stoeger Industries is pleased to announce the addition of the new Cougar Compact to its Cougar series of double-action, semi-auto pistols. Available in 9mm, the Cougar Compact embodies an ergonomic grip that provides more positive control of the gun.

The .45 ACP caliber is also offered in the Cougar series of double-action, semi-auto pistols. The .45 ACP is arguably the most respected pistol cartridge ever designed, with more than a century of outstanding results in major conflicts and law enforcement to underline its superb and proven performance.

Two finishes are available to the Cougar series of semi-automatic pistols. The first option is a non-glare Nitride-Hardened silver steel slide with an anodized alloy matte-silver frame. The second version comes in a two-tone style, featuring a matte Nitride-Hardened black steel slide combined with an anodized alloy matte-silver frame.

A feature, available only on the .45 ACP model, is an integrated accessory rail positioned under the barrel for convenient placement of tactical lights and lasers.

All Stoeger Cougars are equipped with a cable lock for safe storage. Always store your firearm in a secure area, inaccessible to children.

Stoeger's standard, quick-read, three-dot sight system is designed for fast target acquisition.

The ambidextrous safety and decocking lever is easily accessible to the thumb of a right-handed or left-handed shooter.

The rotary-locking principle used in the Stoeger Cougar has been proven in the service pistols of several nations. The barrel stays in one plane, increasing accuracy.
