The Beretta Cougar 8000 series semi-auto has developed a formidable reputation as a reliable, potent weapon. First designed primarily as an undercover gun, the Beretta Cougar 8000 is now carried by growing numbers of police officers as their official duty sidearm because of its superior ergonomic design, low recoil and inherent accuracy.The Cougar is one of the most ergonomically advanced pistols in its class. All edges are rounded or beveled and carefully finished to make the Cougar virtually snag-proof and exceptionally easy to draw and conceal.
The user-friendly, contoured frame and grips make the Cougar exceptionally easy to control during firing. By taking hand anatomy and instinctive hold into account, the Cougar accommodates smaller hands and also protects larger hands from being pinched by the slide.
The new 8000 Mini Cougar couples concealability with serious firepower. Fully one inch shorter in the grip and weighing in at more than two ounces lighter, the Mini Cougar is even more compact than the full size Cougar, yet it has all of the same performance and safety features of its big brother.
Inherent accuracy is built in. The Cougar's short recoil, straight in-line feed system delivers exceptional reliability and accuracy. When the Cougar is in battery, the positive lock-up of barrel to slide assures perfect alignment of barrel and sights. Upon firing, the barrel travels and rotates with axial movement.
By channeling part of the recoil energy into barrel rotation, and by partially absorbing the barrel and slide recoil shock through the central block before it is transferred to the frame, the Cougar achieves unusually low felt recoil. The result is superior accuracy and quicker recovery for second shots.
