With heartiest thanks to Naveed The Great I had the pleasure to receive this pair of original Beretta wood grips for my Stoeger Cougar 8000, which I had been looking for since long, but only due to Naveed just received via TCS this eve and course the "old bride" was "washed", "oiled" "massaged" and instantly "re-dressed" for another long time enjoyment! ;)

May I add Naveed was "hawkish" yesterday, in discovering, alerting, purchasing and mailing me this package all in less than 2 hours! Thanks buddy, I know you wanted them for yourself! ;)

The packing:

Very beautiful Mashallah, these really made the cougar a bride (or groom, whatever;).

How about the feel AK bro? did they make grip fatter or slimer?

Ak bro , Wow !! What a beauty.. Simply marvellous.. Beautiful photography and the bride is looking again "virgin" now .. :) just logged from my phone to see the new beauty.

Sounds so voyeur(ish) :)

Seriously speaking it has given a totally masculine, traditionally original and elegant look to the Stoeger.

@All...........Thanks bro's for all your appreciation, and yes Anthrax bro, "diagnosis" for beautification given by "Dr. Naveed", while I myself, during telephonic consultation with Dr. Aquarius carried out the "surgery" itself! ;) :lol:

@SA............You've come to a very true assessment bro, I too feel it has become more "masculine" and "old detective movies" like, and looks somehow more of "collectible" item now! Kind of "antique" impression, like if inherited! :)

@Den/Malik Sb..........Since your questions were basically the same, let me tell you, it's not only about the looks, I feel my hands on these wooden grips tend to be more "glued on" to the gun, basically due to a more "rouger" surface than on the plastic grips. The machined "texture" on the grips is a nice feeling indeed, and I especially like the "PB" logo on one of the sides! ;)

@Ilyas........ Thanks bro, you're welcome to call anytime, miss talking to you, and about the solvents, I think SA bro was mentioning something about it, I shall reply him tomorrow. :)

@Gilani Sb...........Sir, thanks, hopefully you'll test it with these grips soon! :)

@ Slayer.........Thanks bro, you're right, there's something of "class" about it now, if you don't read the small lettered "Turkey" on the gun, you could nearly boast of a genuine "Beretta" now! ;)

@Naveed..............Splendid "tracing up" bro, and thanks for the expeditious forwarding, owe you a great dinner, anywhere, anytime! :P :)

13-06-2010, 11:03 AM
And one thing more which I forgot to mention is that you are a very lucky guy to have got hold of this beauty, because as per my limited information only limited quantity arrived and sold out immediately like hot cakes..... :D

AK47
13-06-2010, 11:44 AM
@GG, Faheem, Coolbox, Striker1..............Thanks bro's! :)

@Aquarius...........Thanks Sir, and yes you're right, presently there were only 1 pair available, brought in by someone in personal baggage, not an import as such. :)

Now as far as "LUCK" is concerned, you're right again, since the very guy who found them actually needed them for his own "bride"! ;) :lol:

@ Naveed,

Bro, reserve at least one more of these as soon as you see any. One of our Karachi members GunFreak (a good friend of mine) was very excited about it and simply loved it. He kept insisting I request you to reserve one for him if you see one in near future.

GatlinGun
13-06-2010, 08:33 PM
GHolic, you are always ahead of the game ;)

You know, your pictures make me want to get the grips, and then fit a gun to it, sort of like a buying a tie and then getting a suit to go with it...

Regarding the tie & the suit, very true bro. It happened as it's not easy to arrange different accessories so when ever one gets the chance to acquire an accessory he/she should grab that one. :)

@SA and @Naveed_pk

Thanks for your help. SA praised highly of all you guys. I hope to meet you guys someday. SA and i went to the range today and boy did we do some shooting. I have to tell you guys he is pretty good. He shot with his pt92 and pt145 both beauties. I tried my new virgin G26. There were atleast 15 members there. We saw in action berette combact combo, king cobra, viking 446, cz999,G17and others. One of SA's friends brought some semi NPB machine gun type beretta 9mm (old). I could'nt get a chance to ask him what it was but it was surely a beauty. And i was particular impressed with the viking446's trigger. Very nice weapon indeed. SA please post your thoughts.

Don't worry Den, your Doc only advised to be low on the spices, we'll take it all with a light sprinkle of salt 'n pepper only, problem is just WHEN the MOI re-opens for further "Nikaah-Naahma's" before anymore "Waleema's", my faith still allows for a "couple" of more, while you and Glockholic bro are already way out in "polygami"! ;) :lol: :lol:

@ Gunfreak,

Sirjee, you say I was good with my PT145. What about your G26 which you were shooting for the first time and repeating bulls one after the other at 10 meters.

Bro, check this link. Already posted my experience of yesterday here. Couldn't have gone to sleep without it ;)

http://www.pakguns.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=134424#p134424

I think you've missed this thread as well as the Handgun Accuracy thread http://www.pakguns.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=4252 . Spend sometime going through different threads in each section and you'll see what a WEALTH of knowledge and information is lying everywhere for us to absorb.

@ Everyone,

Guys, we have a very nice addition in our community by the name of GunFreak. Though I've known and met him since 2004 through work, but never new that he too was a Gun Enthusiast. And when last week I received his email through pakguns with his full name did I realize who he was. Called him up immediately and met with him at my office the other day, though this time the meeting had totally different agenda items (both PB and NPB) :) He's a good shot and a very pleasing person to enjoy quality time with. Even without meeting you all, he's already a fan of AK, Denovo, Gilani, Skeeter and Naveed. Wait till he meets you all. :)

And btw, that "semi NPB machine gun type beretta 9mm (old)" was GunPsycho's piece of art. A blowback Beretta 9mm PB item from WW2 era, which for obvious reasons, cannot be discussed here. Was fired in single fire mode at the range after due permission from Range Master. It was a TREAT to fire. No recoil whatsoever and deadly accurate at 15 meters. Something about GunPsycho here: He 'truly' is a GunPsycho and though one does not get to know this initially, mainly due to his humble and down to earth personality, once one gets to know him and see his 'hidden' inventory, he's truly amazed. For instance, while most of us are coming to know recently of what a fine weapon this MP446 is, this chap has been enjoying it since 2006. Likewise in case of CZ999. :)




Back to AK's 'rejuvenated bride'. ;)

@Sensei............Thanks and welcome back bro, you really have been missed around here, when they'll pass you out with your 7th Dan! :lol:

Thanks for appreciating the Cougar, your "endorsement" was missing indeed! :)

@Sonnenkind........... Thanks bro, well the Cougar is indeed in a "pristine" condition, I always take best care of my toys, and though it's about 18 months old and perhaps amongst the first of PG Cougars, firing history is some 125-150 rounds only, to the best of my remembrance, and absolutely no hiccups whatsoever, course it's a Stoeger! :)

Thanks brother, any special instuctions to install? I mean i don't want to scratch the screws or any advice from you.

AK47
15-06-2010, 01:43 AM
@GUNFREAK bro............Don't worry, I had the same fears, no scratches, no hard work at all, just ensure the screwdriver you use is approximately the size of the screws themselves. The screws unscrew easily.

Only be careful about one thing, when you lift your plastic grips slowly after unscrewing the screws, there will be a rubber "washer" in the hole beneath the screw, be sure you don't lose this, coz you'll have to seat it again in the screw-holes of your wooden grip to ensure the screw tightens right.

If these "washers" don't come out themselves with the screw, be sure to "push" them out from the screw-holes on your plastic grip with the tip of your screwdriver or the tip of a pen/pencil. Seat them in the holes of your wooden grip, place the screw in the hole and tighten up, that's it! :)

Btw, don't "over tighten" the screws on the wood grips, spare one turn or so! :)

GUNFREAK
15-06-2010, 01:51 AM
Thanks for the help my sixth sense told me to ask you about installation although it seems simple. I will make sure for the washers.

Thanks everybody and yes you're all right, our "LahoreBond" is one true, selfless, cooperative genuine bro we all can count on, always. :)

@Gunpsycho............Bro, thanks and you're right, the "feeling" is much more "Beretta like" than before, I un-holster it a couple of times daily when it's with me, amazing how a simple pair of grips change the whole "worth" of a very common gun.

Such has been the impact of this simple cosmetic "make over" that this thread is well into the 4th page soon, seems like Stoeger within it's budgetary segment still "ROCKS"! :)

And finally, GUNFREAK bro, congrats with your "consignment", as long as these grips are still rare and uncommon, your Stoeger and mine will for sure be a proud pair, yet let's not forget Glockholic bro, who was way advance in the Stoeger "cosmetics" department. :)

Looking forward to seeing your new "miss Stoeger"! ;)

My new beretta stoeger looks awsome. ak47 thank you very very much for your advice about the washers. You were right on, as i unscrewed the grips the washers poped out but i was carefull. Now i am going to show off my new girlfriend at the range on sun. No reason for pics as it is the exact same as ak47 except my baby is not as new as his.
Glockholic would you be kind enough to share your advanced stoeger.

@Jilanik/GG bro's............Being an owner myself of this handgun, I for sure agree with you that despite of it's fair price, it's no ORDINARY gun as such, as far as it's technical working/aspects/reliability/ is concerned. :)

I actually stated COMMON by count of popularity only. :)

@GUNFREAK.............Bro, you're welcome, glad you received your grips and completed the "surgery"! Thanks go to Naveed solely! :)

regards Now bro, with the first stage of "make-over" done, you wanna go into final "hair-styling", ha ha ha! :lol:

O.K, please check in thread "Window Shopping", where Naveed bro initially posted those grips, you'll find he also posted below PX-4 holster in which the Cougar fitted perfectly, priced at 5K!

As you can see in other pics of Naveed's post, the PX-4 holster suits the Cougar pretty well, coz basically there's not much difference between the frames and sizes of the PX-4 model and the Cougar.

Other option is a 2.5K Uncle Mike's holster that I'm using, the Cougar fits perfectly into this:

You can see my gun in this holster on past page, this was just the packing of it to help you find the right size and number. It's size 15. Best Luck. :)

@Ak bro Last time when 12 guage was in Lahore .. I took him to Baksh Ellahi where i saw this Fobus 'type' holster .. When 12 guage bro saw this and said the holster is off very low quality and it will ruin the finish of Handhun totally .. Material was not very soft... So , Finnaly this holster is totally crap ..
And regarding Uncle Mikes one , Yes the quality is very good i am also using same Holster for my stoeger .. Current price is Now 3k

Sorry Ak bro For Hijacking the thread

Last time i bought shoulder holster for my stoeger ... Holster is a little large than pistol form muzzle end.. The Plus point is that we can use the Holster and Magzine case independently also on our belt .. Very thin profile , but dont have clip on it .. Just for belt use .BTW we can add a clip.. here are some pics

No problem with hijacking Naveed, it's all Stoeger related! :)

And btw thanks for discarding the PX-4 holster timely.

The Uncle Mike one, whether shoulder or hip type, both are fine, excellent. I think you missed the pics few pages back, since this thread is getting unexpectedly long. Let me post it again, it's full Stoeger size, no extra length, no short ends, just accurate.

It was beautiful aleast 4 persons enquired about the grips, so my friend let me know also if you come across any new shipment from the dealer you bought them from. What my friends were so amazed about was how i got hold of orignal beretta cougar grips when they are not commanly available even in U.S. Mostly Houge grips are available there.

We are manufacturing various grips,hand guards and butt stocks for different arms for POF. If the grips are polymer & composite based, they can be easily manufactured, through injection or compression molding process. However the mold costs are very high. Hence it doesn't match the economics of the trade, unless one has a bulk order to cover costs and overheads.
Frankly I believe most of the tactical kits being sold in the market are being indegeniously manufactured, in some cottage industry. I am waiting to be proven wrong !

AK47
22-06-2010, 12:51 PM
@GUNFREAK bro.................You're right, making of these grips by our talented local craftsmen should really be no ROCKET SCIENCE, yet it would still require some fine machinery, especially the "checkering" on the surface of the grips, furthermore the round-sawing on a piece of wood that's hardly I think 2mm thick! :)

Yet, for sure, it's worth a try, I'm soon to send my plastic grips to one such "specialist", you should be able to guess the ID of! ;)

There may be some changes on the facing of the grips, yet let's see where it all ends. :)
