    Hi folks,

    basic question: I looked to see if I could find info about this but did not.

    How do you feild strip the beretta mini-couger?

    Story as to why I would like to know:

    I know a guy who bought a mini couger 8040 new a few years ago. He is the husband of my girlfriends boss. They had a BBQ and I met him and started talking. The girls talked about going shooting in the past, so We started about shooting one day at the range. I asked him what kind of pistol he has and all he said was a beretta. He didn't remember the model or cal. of it. He offered to let me see it so I headed back to a room away from others to check it out.

    Well it is a Mini-couger 8040. He had a 10rd mag with a grip spacer. I am not sure if he has the other mag or not.

    The condition of the pistol was SAD. Dry as a bone and the barrel looked like the oil dried and formed a film.

    *the gun was unloaded and cleard*
    I racked the slide a few times with no mag and could feel the slide hesitate(sp) when going back into battery. I know this had to be due to no oil/gummed up old oil.

    I wanted to feild strip it to look at the "guts" but I don't know how to take the gun down to feild strip it.

    The girls have talked about going to the range sometime and I want to show him how he needs to take care of the pistol.

    This was the first time I met the guy. He seems nice but a little "cocky" I am not sure if he was acting dumb about the gun to see if I knew what I was talking about. He also said that he bought the gun because he was held up at gun point. So I know he has a very limited knowlege. I am not claiming I know it all but I know I can teach him the basics to at least stay safe.

    I am kinda hoping that I may be able to buy it for a good price if I can talk him into selling it....just maybe..
