I have a Stoeger Cougar 40, most accurate centerfire pistol I've ever owned. Due to rotary lock up the barrel has very little rise which makes for great follow up shots. Once I tried point shooting at 7 yards and all rounds hit within a 6" circle. I'd buy another in a flat second. Great quality for a decent price.

That's good to know I have a STOEGER m3500 shotgun and I really like it so I was interested in some other STOEGER items and I really pike these pistols....I think I'm going to go put a 40 cal in layaway..

I can only say I've read two reviews, years apart from G & A. The first, was exactly like the above from Viking. The second review said good things but got absolutely std accuracy and didn't see any real benefits to the rotary action. (over other action types)

Either way, it's a good service grade pistol. Sorry, I couldn't be more helpful.

I have a Stoeger 8040 Cougar, .40 S&W. It is GREAT! I have a couple dozen guns, but will always carry the Cougar whenever I can wear clothes that will conceal it. It has 11+1 capacity, shoots straight, and has been utterly dependable. I've had it 3 years, now, shot it a lot, no trouble. The rotating barrel lockup does indeed make for great accuracy, and it is easy to clean. On a scale of 1 to 10 it is a 9.

Check it out ask if the dealer will break the pistol down like would be done for cleaning so you can see the wear surfaces and get a good look at the bore. These pistols are tough and should handle thousands of rounds through them and still be pretty tight. If the cougar looks like it hasn't had a huge amount of rounds through it then that's a good price.
