  • 16" Puma 454 at Fbks gunshow---heads up

    Just a heads up for anyone interested. I was at the gunshow yesterday (2/27/2011) here in Fairbanks and a guy has a 16" Puma 454 Levergun. Stainless, with HiViz sights and a sling for $475.00. He said he'd take 400 for it. They don't make these anymore. I have a 20" otherwise I'd have bought it. He's upstairs and has a few FA revolvers as well. Including a 500WE with octagon barrel and a bunch of ammo and brass.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

    Snyd,
    I saw it too. I should have looked at it more closely. Did you happen to find out where he is from, or any contact info?
    Thanks,

        I'll take it. Grab it for me Snyd, I'll fly up next weekend to pick it up and buy you a beer.

          Dang, I should have just bought the thing. I knew somebody would want it. I don't know how to get a hold of the guy and the show's over.

            64

            Have you shot an animal with that rifle of your's? I'm very interested in that gun, and a guy I know will trade with me his for a pre 64 30-30 winchester rifle. I'm really interested to hear how the recoil is, and how it performs on game. I'd imagine it wouldn't be much different than a 45-70, just a heck of a lot less rifle weight. gotta love those model 92's.

              Nope, I haven't shot a critter with it but the bottom line is with the 20 inch barrel mine picks up about 300-350 fps over 45 Colt or 454 Casull loads in my revolvers. It'll do the job no prob. I've shot quite a few 335gr at 17-1900 fps. It kicks like a high powered rifle, maybe an aught six?. No biggie.

                My H&R single in 454 is much kinder to shoot than my 45/70 singles.Real men would not give either a thought
                Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

                  I shot a fair sized black tail with my Puma 20" 454 using a 300gr sierra jacketed at about 1600 at 75yds. It just made a finger sized hole behind one shoulder and out through the other. Since then I got one of the Lee 300gr molds (actual 318gr) and with a case full of Lil Gun it's getting about 1950 fps with moderate recoil. It is a fun gun to hunt with.
