Beretta 8000 series pistols, also known under the Cougar name, first appeared on the market in 1994 as a more compact alternative to bulky, full-sized Beretta M92F service pistols. Cougar pistols were originally developed for the then new .40S&W cartridge, and latter were adopted to other calibers, such as 9x19mm Para. .357 SIG and .45ACP. These pistols offer good compromise between concealability, ease of carry, accuracy and firepower. These pistols are well suited for both police duty and for civilian self-defense.

Cougar 8000 series pistols are recoil operated, locked breech semiautomatic pistols. These pistols use relatively rare rotating barrel locking system, in which the barrel rotates on recoil to unlock itself from the slide. The rotating motion of the barrel is controlled by the stud on its bottom, which follows the cam track in the steel frame insert. To decrease peak recoil and stress to the frame, the insert is mounted on the recoil spring and is buffered. The frame is made from lightweight aluminum alloy.

The 8000 series is available in several calibers and in either "F", "D" or "G" configuration.
The basic version of the Cougar pistol is the "F" model, with double action trigger with exposed hammer, and ambidextrous safety/decocker levers, located on the slide.
"D" version, which is double action only, and thus have spurless hammer and no safety/decocker levers.
"G" version, which is a DA/SA variant with a "decock" only feature. It features an exposed hammer with ambidextrous decocking levers (on the slide). There is no safety on this model.
Cougar pistols use double-stack magazines in 9mm, .357 and .40 caliber models, and single stack magazines in .45 caliber models.

Calibers:

  • 8000: 9 x 19 mm, 15-round magazine capacity
  • 8000L: 9 x 19 mm, lighter, more compact, 13-round magazine capacity
  • 8000L Type P: 9 x 19 mm, lighter, more compact, 15-round magazine capacity

  • 8040: .40 S&W, 11-round magazine capacity
