Stoeger Industries is a manufacturer and importer of firearms into the United States.

The company's Stoeger Publishing division also publishes books and videos about firearms, hunting and fishing.

Stoeger Industries' headquarters are in Accokeek, Maryland, United States. Stoeger is a wholly owned subsidiary of Benelli, which in turn is owned by Italian firearms manufacturer Beretta.

History[edit]

Prior to its acquisition by Beretta, Stoeger was located in New Jersey and prior to that was the largest gun store in New York City.

Stoeger commissioned various small companies in Germany to manufacture a .22 Long Rifle replica of the Luger, which it imported. It later sold an American-made version of the Luger in 1994. The pistol was all stainless steel and was in 9 mm and sold as the American Eagle Luger with 4" and 6" barrels. Stoeger has owned the name "Luger" starting around 1924.

Stoeger also distributed in the United States some firearms made by Fabrique Nationale (FN).
