I own them made both ways. I have seen nothing that can make me believe that an aluminum framed pistol like a Sig Sauer will not hold up as well as a Sigma. Nothing against the Sigma. I've owned one and thought it was a great gun...trigger aside. My Para LTC is an alloy framed pistol and it probably has more rounds though it then both the mentioned guns in the OP and I imagine they wont catch up any time soon. It's as good today as it was when I got it new a few years ago. Nothing helps proof like real world testing.

You and anyone who prefers striker fired guns. Still baffling to me, but it takes all kinds.

Ps, I shot my friend's Sigma several times, great gun.
For me, in this case, its the brand. I say that admitting that I have not shot the cougar..but that I do not care for stoegers shotguns..so it comes from that. I do like my Striker-fired pictured above though))

The cougar is basically a baretta. Made on same beretta machines from what I understand.

To nod your head and grunt like you agree just to shut him up!
I know someone like that, 'mine is better'... 'my 30-06 is better in every way than your 308'

I stopped debating him a long time ago

Yep, and it's one of the most accurate out of the box firearm I've every shot and with the rotary lockup design follow up shots are great due to very little recoil raise.
