Caliber: .45 Colt
Action Type: Lever-Action Trapper Carbine
Serial Number: 45-1509
Barrel Length: 16 inches
Stock Configuration & Condition: Dark wood stock and forend, with a fitted carbine-style steel butt plate. The stock is rather nice with some very interesting character lines. There are a few very minor nicks from handling, with a 3-inch scratch on the right forend, just behind the barrel band.
Sights: A front blade and an elevation adjustable rear leaf sight are dovetailed into the barrel. Please note; the front sight, while completely functional, is a tiny bit loose in the dovetail and should be peened securely into its slot.
Type of Finish: Blue steel
Year of Manufacture: Modern
Markings: ".45 Colt" is stamped on the left side of the barrel; "45-1509" is stamped on the underside of the receiver, and "Puma M92 Imported by/LSA, Reno, NV" is stamped on the upper tang.
Finish Originality: Factory Original
Finish Condition: The metal is nearly flawless, showing very little use. There is one spot of surface rust on the right side of the barrel, at the rear sight. Otherwise, the gun just shows light surface marks from storage.
Bore Condition: The bore is bright, showing extremely little use.
Mechanics: The rifle functions smoothly and correctly, although we have not test-fired this gun.
Overall Condition / Final Thoughts: This is a light, compact, handy little rifle, packing quite a punch! The .45 Colt chambering is an extremely useful one, capable of being loaded down to shoot Cowboy Action Competition, or of being loaded up with rounds powerful enough to take virtually any game to be found in the lower 48 states. The big-loop lever and saddle ring conjure up images of John Wayne, but should not overshadow the fact that the Model 92 action is an extremely strong design, up to taking any abuse the powerful .45 Colt cartridge is capable of dishing out. Whether used as a neat saddle or truck rifle, or used for Cowboy Competition, the lucky winning bidder will have a great little rifle that appears to be very sharp.
