The Stoeger firearms company has recently announced a fine addition into their already wonderful line of Cougar handguns. This is a compact version of their popular Cougar pistol, which was originally manufactered by Beretta.

The new CougarCompact features a 13 round magazine which delivers 9mm rounds into a devastating patented rotating barrel system.  This firearm allows features a rounded frame which is ideal for conceal carry and draw. Currently, the CougarCompact is only available in 9mm, but we hope Stoeger will soon release .40 SW and .45 ACP models as well. We are also slightly disappointed that the new Cougar does not feature an accessibly rail under the barrel.

However, we are very excited to see an addition to the Cougar line, and priced at $449.00, it is hard to NOT order one immediately.
