    i went and got my cougar and it feels great, i haven't shot it yet but hope to soon. i didn't notice this at the shop, i checked the trigger pull, and safeties, as well as the cocking of the gun but i never looked at the front end. is this normal for this gun?, is the front of the cougars like this? i wanted to know before i shot it. thanks

    Do you meant he barrel looks off center?

    Did you make sure that thing was empty before you pointed it at us? ;)

    Nice view of the rifling. Great photo.

    Sorry. I should have stayed out of this. :( I didn't see the firing pin (I'm not experienced enough) and I would never have noticed the ring on the front of the slide. I'll step aside and let someone who knows something comment. :eek:

    sorry if it bothered you about pointing the gun, i didn't want to disasemble the gun to take a pic. it looks like the slide has a insert in the front, i just wondered if all cougars had this? thanks

    Haha, I should have printed that in green text. I was only kidding. How the heck is that gun going to hurt me through the computer. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Going to go back and put that in green text right now.

    I'm sorry for mucking up your thread. If you want, I'll delete my smart alec comments.

    If it makes you feel better winds, when I saw it I drew my gun and pointed it at my phone and almost fired. Lol

    Death smiles at every one. Marines smile back.

    I laughed like the joker ;)

    OP, I wouldn't worry about it. It's new, and came from the factory that way, correct?

    I got worried when he said he was going to shoot his cougar. I thought don't do that just take her back to the bar where you found her. :D

    It looks like a pressed in bushing, but I have never worked on one and from the pictures on the web I cant tell for sure. Did they have any more at the shop you can compare it to?
