Been hunting for a 357/38 lever for quite awhile and came across this puma last week at a LGS and struck a deal, rifle is a 24" octagon barrel with brass receiver and trim, Looks to be in 95% or better shape and very clean , I spoke with Steve at Steve's guns and Rossi directly and supposedly this rifle was only made 2 years and discontinued in 2007, really wanted a J! Marlin to go with my JM 1895 guide 45/70 but this was just too pretty to pass up , thought I would post some eye candy

Great find, I was hunting for one but it seems they only make them in 45LC now by Rossi. Sure wished I could have found one in 44 mag.
