    I'm getting ready to thin the herd, and I've got a couple of new-in-box Beretta 8000F Cougars in stainless (inox) that I'm probably going to part with. My standard, bruniton-finished 8000F will probably be going too. Anybody have information on what these are going for these days? I've also got a collection of 15-round and 10-round magazines that go with them. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello friends and neighbors// 2010 Standard Catalog of Firearms

    Beretta 8000F-Cougar L
    NIB$600/EXC500/VG400

    Book prices are lower than store/FTF prices around here.
    Have fun searching, looks like a great firearm.

    And, that's for a Bruniton-finished model. In Inox, I would imagine the book value is considerably higher.

    I've seen used Inox Cougars in VG being sold for $800 or more. Not sure how long it took to sell them, but I've never seen one in Excellent or NIB go for less than $800 or I'd own one. And I've looked many times over the past year or two.

    Hello friends and neighbors // Thanks for the info.

    I was wondering if there is a difference, I've never heard of INOX and thought it was a typo. ;)
    My book does not list INOX just L and mini in the Cougar.

    INOX is Italian speak for Stainless Steel...

    I just bought one of these...

    So the Inox rarely goes for less than $800 ?
    I got one in mint cond. and I think I got a great deal at $500. It's a 9mm

    What do you all think?

    Yes, that is a steal. Someone sold 2 on the Beretta Forum recently, and I think they went for something like $800 a piece.

    Shipwreck, those two were mine... they sold for $850 each including shipping (which I think was a fair price). I also sold my 8000F with standard Bruniton finish at the local Gun Show a week ago for $525 including a couple of extra magazines.

    And NCIndependence, $500 for a well-cared-for Inox 9mm Cougar is a terrific bargain. Enjoy!

    As for me, "the thinning of the herd" is now officially completed.

    I was tempted to get 1 of those - but I generally charge new guns and pay them off in 3-4 months. So, i never have all the cash to buy from a person. Otherwise, I may have snagged 1 of those.

    +1. From what I understand they actually bought all of the intellectual property and tooling for this design from Beretta. The gun are functionally the same as the Berettas were.

    I may buy one in 45 later. But the Inox Cougar is not the same as their Silver colored Stoeger. The "inox" finish on the Stoeger is a coating. It's not real Inox unfortunately - if it were, I think they'd sell even more.

    Thanks for clarifying that. Makes sense now why the "inox" is a lot more money. All my guns are the basic black. I did pick up a Stoeger 8045 recently, it shoots as good, if not better than my 8000. There $419 NIB in my area. I was able to pick up a used one locally for $269.

    Well, I love the Beretta 92 platform. And, I could get a D spring and a skeletonized spring to work in the Cougar. Plus, I know how to take all the parts in the 92's frame apart - and it will be the same for the COugar. After I get a couple more 92 variants, I may pick up a 45 cougar next year
