Rossi Puma .454 Casull Gun Review

The Rossi Puma is one of the sexiest guns I’ve ever used. The lever-action gun was developed with the original Winchester/Browning rifle as it uses almost the same technology.

Performance

As it uses the original Winchester/Browning idea for developing the rifle, it has become a very simple rifle but highly efficient. Highly reliable, the gun will most likely become your favorite hunting gun.

My initial reaction to the Rossi Puma was the size. The rifle is actually very small but comes with a 16-inch barrel. This size suggests the ability of the rifle to be stable and provide the much needed accuracy. The size also suggests some downside that was immediately addressed by the gun: the small size of Rossi Puma increases the risk of breakage especially the bolt.

Your bolt could be easily destroyed especially if you’re using lever action. However, the manufacturers addressed that problem by providing large steel bars on both ends. These steel components stabilize the bolt which means breakage during handling is very rare, if not impossible.

Features

Complementing its size is the weight of the rifle. With less than six pounds, the gun can be carried around for hours without any problem. The gun also comes with 8 rounds (9 with the cartridge) which should be more than enough for your hunting needs. With that said, some are contending to the idea that the rifle is actually good for self defense rather than hunting. It’s agreeable that the gun is good for self defense but the gun is also great for hunting especially of its firepower. The extra rounds are simply for the needed protection especially when you’re in the woods and confronted with dangerous animals. Besides, the safety operation that goes with the lever action design does not place anyone on immediate danger.

Appeal

The only downside of the rifle is with its recoil. This is actually expected since the gun packs a strong firepower on a light body. But they can be easily handled due to its size and weight.

Another feature is the rifle’s loading options. Owners can load the gun by unscrewing the tubular portion of the rifle. The other option is the traditional loading in the right side of the rifle. Both works just fine but for practical reasons, the right side loading is a better technique.

The design and finish of the rifle is one of the best in the industry. The standard 16-inch Rossi Puma comes with silver finish which looks good along with the clean wood finish. You don’t even have to clean the gun after purchase as they just look great and would stay that way for many years. All you need to do is internal cleaning and the rest would be good. On the other hand, there are those that are not comfortable with metal finish of the rifle. The 16-inch barrel version only comes with this color. It’s not that the gun do not provide the cleanliness they want, it’s just that the metal finish can easily give away their position.
