Puma .454

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Are Puma and Rossi the same gun under different names? I'm looking at a used Puma .454 Casull for $495. ....or not.

Puma is now made by Chippa in Italy and was made by Rossi in Brazil.

I used to have one, and somewhat regret selling it. It was a 16" stainless model with black wood furniture. Kicked like a frickin' mule when I handloaded the ammo with H110 and heavy bullets.

I'm a scope guy, so that was a chunk of the reason I got rid of it. I was told, by more than one source, that the only credible mount for a '92 would eventually break under .44 Magnum recoil.

Puma is merely a marketing name copyrighted and used by Legacy Sports International who used the name for many years on the Rossi leveraction but now uses it exclusively on the Chiappa. They are different guns having been sold under the same "name". Chiappa does not, and has never, produced a .454. The .454 is an exclusive Rossi product.

I have Rossi's in stainless for both the 357 Mag & 454 Casull. The 454 came with the ugly black woodwork, which I replaced with nice walnut and stainless buttplate. Has a substantial kick, but shoots like a charm. Good hardware and I like them both a lot.
