    Rossi Puma .45 lever action

    I'm thinking of buying (300) a used Rossi Puma lever action in .45 Colt, 24" octagonal barrel, cased hardened action - it looks nice.

    Thing is, it is a private sale and if I buy it due to the distance apart we live it will be transferred to me sight unseen.

    Plus I will have no come back if it is a bad'un.

    Any real problems with these, or are they generaly OK?

    BigSkiff and I both own one of these. Mine has the 20" octagonal barrel and I believe Skiff's is a 16" round barrel. I can say, mine has been perfect with no issues whatsoever. The only dislike I can find is the stock rear sight. Very functional, but kinda cheesy lookin'. Looks kinda like a high end BB gun sight. But those can be changed out. Accurate and reliable. The action is tighter and feels much better than my Winchester 94AE.

    It's a little hard to tell, but those rear sights look thicker and heavier than what came with mine. Handsome rifle though!

    No problems with mine either. It's respectably accurate and a lot of fun to shoot. I agree with Smoke about the sights. They really could be better. They work, and I guess in reality that all you can ask for, but a good upgrade set of sights would make this an even better rifle.

    I do not have the Puma. I do have a Rossi Hartford Model 24 inch octagon barrel in .38/.357. I shoot Cowboy Action with it. It has started to stove pipe when loading. Going to send it to this guy, and have him work it over. Any individual firearm can have its own problems. Like people. They all have their own personality.

    I've given this particular Puma a miss, but I have another lined up. Will keep you all posted.

    Well, looked at the other one, not what I wanted - no octagonal barrel, no forend cap.

    So, I've ordered a new one, .45LC, 24" octagonal barrel, can't wait.
