Just some extra FYI, the Stoeger can use most all aftermarket parts as the Beretta Cougar. Holsters, grip panels, magazines, etc.
Here's a pic of mine with a FIST holster, grip panels, and panel screws all for a Beretta.

I thought I'd read that the Stoegers were built in Turkey on tooling purchased from Berreta?

The article was several years ago and sounded like a great deal. Basically getting Berreta quality for several hundred less because of the production location.

I can't imaging why Berreta would provide their tooling to a competitor? Or are they associated somehow? Like a Berreta budget line?

Basically stoeger is beretta and benelli's budget guns. Benelli bought stoeger in 2000 to basically make a working man's gun and they have finally got all the quarks worked out and they are making some really good shotguns and from what I've read some really good pistols for a great price. There semi auto shotguns are based off the benelli inertia action their pumps are almost identical to the benelli nova pump and their pistol are just like the berettas....they also make a really good SxS and O/U shotguns too....STOEGER has come long way in the gun market

That's a great looking holster. Do you have a pic of the other side? If you don't mind answering how much did the holster cost and source?

Thanks. I like the strength FIST has given the holster around the belt slots, that seems to be a weak area in many other holsters.

Good trade, bro. You definitely didn't get hurt.
Post your thoughts after you shoot that Cougar.
