My understanding was that yes, NATO has a standardized 15,000 round torture test that is applied to all submitted firearms to NATO countries. However I've only ever seen this referred to in a few articles. The Beretta USA sight states that the Cougar passed this test. I remember reading an article several years ago when the Glock-19 was said to have passed this test. It also involves inclement weather testing etc. There is also spec testing from what I gather ie. You have to be a standard NATO caliber (9mm, 5.56etc). At the moment the only reference I can find is the Beretta Law Enforcement catologue which states that the Cougar is "NATO Approved". But there is other material out there I just did not save it as i was not really interested in the Cougar or Glock at the time. (anyone else know what I'm talking about? Help!
Ok I've got Walther Customer service looking into it, we'll see what they come up with and I'll advise if anyone is interested. Fredette whoever that is sent me an email saying they were researching this.I know Springfield sent my buddie a ton of material when he asked.
