    I've got the opportunity to trade into a gently used, 2-year old Puma '92 in .45 Colt. It's the 20" round barrel, case-hardened frame with standard loop. Approximately 2 years old, it's had about 50 commercial rounds fired through it. I am assuming this is the Legacy/Chiappa Puma and not the Taurus/Rossi Puma - I'm waiting for confirmation on that.

    Any comments on the Puma? This one reportedly has decent accuracy at CAS distances (50 yards). Also supposed to be quite smooth, near pre-'64 Winchester levels.

    I don't need the rifle, but enjoy the lever action for a blaster and range gun. As I reload for my Smith 25-5, ammo isn't a problem. Supposedly this rifle has "gentler" rifling that allows for cast bullets needed in CAS shooting. I'm not a CAS shooter - just a paper and plate shooter.

    I would give up my 3" Ruger SP101, also hardly used.

    Sound like a good trade?

    Updated info

    Seller tells me it's just like this one: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=218768691

    That is NOT the specific gun I'm looking at.

    Gun was purchased in 2006. Seller thinks it was EMF-Hartford built. This notice is posted on their website:

    Any hesitation in buying a gun with a lack of factory support, or does Taurus cover any warranty work on this?
