    I wouldn't try to hotrod a brass frame gun. The steel receiver guns are very strong, though.

    Re: Puma 45 Long Colt Lever Action?

    I have a brass receiver with a hex barrel that I do love, and I do not need to or want to hot rod anything anymore, to old and beat up for that. Mine is smooth as butter and accurate, goes well with my 45 Gaucho which is as accurate as any gun I have.

    I didn't own one when this thread started, but I do now. I gotta say, it's tighter and just as accurate as my Winchester levergun in .45 Colt. Color case hardening and octagonal barrel. The overall function is even smoother. More handsome too.

    I haven't given up on getting one of these. It's just that with ammo being so hard to come by I would rather shoot it in my pistols for now. I will get one of these someday.

    I shoot the ammo in both, BigSkiff. Don't wait to long. They're a hoot to shoot!

    Re: Puma 45 Long Colt Lever Action?

    Which barrel length do you have? Round or Octagonal? Bud's has a 24" Octagonal Barrel in 45LC for $508 delivered. They've also got a 16" barrel in 45LC with a 2 stage trigger.. Not to sure about that one. The 24" has a case hardened receiver and the 16" has a blue receiver. I like the blue receiver better but the 2 stage trigger I'm not sure about. Whatcha think Smoke?

    Mines the 20 inch octagonal barrel. Seems a little heavier than round. It has the color case hardened receiver, which gives it more of an antique look. Not sure myself about a two stage trigger. The octagonal barrel is what caught my eye and made the sale though. I like the barrels of 20 inch and more, as to me, they are more asthetically pleasing.

    Re: Puma 45 Long Colt Lever Action?

    I can understand a two stage trigger on a target rifle or an AR, but I'm not sure I get it on a lever action carbine. It's kind of an odd duck. So here's what I guess I've come to weighing the pros and cons; on the plus side for me is the carbine length, the blued receiver, and the $422 price tag is $86 bucks less. On the con side is the trigger and the round barrel. I guess that makes it 3 for and two against. I would probably like the octagonal barrel in the longer length as well. Dilemma.

    Bud's also has the 45LC in the 16" barrel, with the large lever loop, ala John Wayne. You have an opinion on those? I've never shot a lever gun with a large loop.
