I don't know of another brand that gives you a $700 handgun for $419 NIB. It also seems to still be quite a well kept secret since no one has recommended it yet.
You will be hard pressed to find a negative OWNER review, what you will find is that 99% of people that actually own a Cougar feel the same way I do.
If you do your research & you like the way it fits your hand it will be the smartest $400 you have ever spent on a handgun.
How about Made in China for $99.99?
They are no more synonymous than RELIABLE and EXPENSIVE or INEXPENSIVE and UNRELIABLE.
Good guns can be found for good prices. I know, people on here will argue that if you do not spend $1700 on a 1911 you will not get a reliable gun but they would be wrong.
2. Used HK USP
3. New or used M&P45 or Glock 21SF
4. XD-45 with a bunch of magazines and a lot of testing of said magazines.
IMO, those people are wrong: especially in regards to the P90 that several members have recommended.
It has a little fatter grip, but holds more ammo. I saw a used one for $450 the other day.
So far, in my experience, "cheap" and "reliable" do not intersect.
However, I have bought several reasonably priced ($575-750) Kimbers that have been 100% reliable. These are the the 1911s I carry.
I also own several of the "higher priced spread"...and despite the fact that they are "somewhat troublesome", I am continuing to work with a few of them (and have given up on others).
Note that I do not carry them...
Metro arms has a line called American Classic, They are right at $350. I have recieved one as a gift recently and was amazed at the accuracy and smoothness of the gun. I own Kimber springfield and Colt as well. I would compare the gun right up there with these guns as far as operation and dependability. But the good part is as far as price, It's on top of the list.
Check them out there are alot of reviews in print and on youtube. Hope this helps.
the hand. I plan on buying another.
I almost went with the Glock 21, but it felt way to thick and awkward in my hand. The M&P fits like a glove. This is coming from a guy that loves his glocks as well.
Taurus or Hi-Point
I have the Taurus 24/7 Pro DS- got it two weeks ago for 349.00
Also have a Hi-Point 45. Cost $179.00 It's ugly, kinda heavy, but when you pull the trigger a bullet comes out the correct end. Shoots pretty well.
