Default My Puma 44 mag

I have had my puma 44 model 92 for over a year and my only complaint is that it doesn't feed cheap ammo very well. I live in Indiana and bought it for deer hunting and did not have to track one deer shot last year. 3 for 3 dropped in their tracks.

If you want a similar gun to that puma , kinda like a Win M-94 then get a Mossberg 464 lever gun .

By the way I agree with Paul , that gun is DORK endorsed .


Not sure ''we'' let Winchester go under. I think they did it to themselves. Why would i pay more for less gun, just because it says Winchester? I and most other shooter's buy guns based on bang for the buck NOT name's.

i have one and i would take it over a marlin any day, its the same as a win modle 94, now i no there is folks out there who call me crazy because i wouldnt want the marlin, however i have a reason. i dont like the crazy safties on them and the ones i am familiar with have a problem with the lever opening (just personal exp not sayin they all do that) but anyway. the gun is light and short and an awesome brush gun, it has a half****ed saftey (very handy plues the 44 mag is great for deer close up but the effective range is only about 100 yrds to about 150 if your really good. and 'lob' the bullet in there but anyway thats my two cents

I have a Marlin Guide Gun in .45-70. I had a smith remove the lever safety and I removed the trigger safety and put in a blank.

Just a thought. Support your country guys!
