    Hello all,

    long time reader first time poster.

    I've been eyeballing 9mm's for a few months now and finally narrowed down my decision to the glock26. I currently own a great condition (less than 500 rounds fired, no scratches, strip down and cleaned every time after firing) Beretta 8040. I still have the original box with two 11 round mags. I want to trade it in for a glock 26 (paying the difference out of pock) how much should I get for Beretta?

    thanks

    Welcome to GT.:wavey:

    I went to gunbroker and put in beretta 8040.
    They don't list a single one. That makes me
    think you might consider keeping it. If you
    search around you can always find a nicely
    priced G26. They are plentiful.

    Thank for the insight.

    I bought the Beretta Cougar 8040 right before it was discontinued. Beretta moved the Cougar line to Stoeger. You can now buy Stoeger Cougar 8040 which are exactly like the Beretta's minus the Beretta name. Do you think Beretta Cougar will eventually become a collectors item?

    G26's are awesome pistols - reliable and accurate. You'll love yours once you get it.

    I don't know about collector's item, but I think the Beretta Cougar is a neat pistol. I would hold on to it.

    IMO, the slide on the Beretta looks a lot nicer than the slide on the Stoeger.

    OK guys, you have me convinced. I'm going to hang on to my cougar and keep it as a home gun....next step....I need to save some $$$ to pick up a new glock26.

    Great move to keep it, the g26 can be found every where but the Beretta 8040 can't.

    FWIW, the Beretta Cougar was initially designed around the .40s&w. The 9mm and .45acp versions were added later. I prefer the Beretta 8000/8040/8045 models over the 92/96. Even though I really like the G26...I would hold on to the Beretta.
