Default Rossi Puma 92 .45LC

Quick question for the experts...

I picked up a 1995 (never fired) Rossi Puma 92 .45LC at a garage sale for $200. Came with box and all the papers. I know that they sell for about $350 on gunbroker but I would like to know if this is a keeper or if I should look at selling it for a small profit.

My other rifles are much more "practical" (a .22 and a .223) and spend most of the time at the range so I am really not sure what I would use this for other then a nice mantle piece or perhaps a home defense piece.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

I've been looking at those myself.
Mainly because I have revolvers in .45 Colt.

I do have basically the same carbine in .357 Mag. to go with my .357 revolver.
It gives me a common carbine/revolver combination and it is capable of taking a deer at shorter ranges, if need be.

I have one in .357 mag and it is so much fun to shoot, you have to play with it before you sell it.

My lever guns are Marlins, but I don't have anything against the Win 92 clones. To find out if it is a keeper, you will need to shoot it to determine reliability and accuracy. If those are ok, then it is a definate keeper.

Don't be surprised if it is a little stiff. Gunsmiths who specialize in cowboy shooting can take care of that. A 92 can be a really slick gun. They certainly are bull strong.
