ACCOKEEK, MD – Stoeger Industries is pleased to announce that the -series of double-action, semi-auto pistols now includes the .45 ACP caliber. A new 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. 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.
Cougar pistols feature a rotating barrel that locks with the slide, meaning extra strength, and because it stays on the same plane for each shot, greater accuracy is achieved. The barrels are cold hammer-forged and the bores are hard chrome-lined for exceptional durability, which promotes longer barrel life. Additional features include rounded-edges for snag-free drawing; removable front-sight, ambidextrous safety, and combat-style trigger guard. External surfaces are protected with the exclusive Bruniton® non-reflective finish. The Cougar .45 comes equipped with two 8-round magazines.
“Incorporating the finest technology and maintaining proven semi-auto features, the Cougar is a light, compact and reliable pistol,” said Stephen McKelvain, Vice President of Marketing & Communications. “Accuracy, reliability and manageable recoil makes the Cougar a perfect choice for home defense, or range shooting available at a great price.”
