The 44 mag Legacy Arms "Puma" I had was a "deluxe" version: 24" octagon barrel; color case receiver, butt plate and lever; very nice wood. It was also very accurate, w/the same 200gr XTP loads I shoot in my M629 S&W.
Sold it to a member here, but only because I'd finally found the Winchester M64 that I'd been looking for. Had five other lever rifles at the time, so the 44 mag became expendable.
Fit/finish/function were all very good on my 44 mag. Tad heavy, was my only grumble, but that's expected with a long, heavy barrel. OTOH, being a bit heavy on the front end usually makes for better offhand shooting. At least for me?
Take a look at what Uberti or Navy Arms has to offer. Bit pricey, probably worth it?
