Bounty Hunter

http://www.legacysports.com/products/puma/puma_bhunterm87shot.html

Based on the gun that cowboy character Josh Randall carried in the 1950ís television series by the same name, Legacy Sports International announces the release of the Bounty Hunter Model 92 under their popular Puma brand. Manufactured in Italy by Chiappa Firerms,the Bounty Hunter is considered by Federal Law a handgun, not a rifle.

Itís 12 inch barrel and 24 inch overall length make it ideal as a pack gun or a nostalgia collectible. With a six round magazine, the Bounty Hunter also features a large, ĺ loop lever and the same beautiful wood and metal finish as the new line of full sized Model 92ís. Available in .45 Colt, .44-40 or .44 Magnum.

Well, if it is legally considered a handgun wouldn't it fall under single action pistol that is at least x inches long? So it wouldn't have to be on the roster or anything.

I guess having the buttstock shortened like that at the time of manafacture is what keeps it as a pistol? Kinda cool if so, I'd be interested in one.

Not on the Cali approved roster and wouldn't be considered a single action pistol for the fact that it is a repeater unless you have the manufacturer make it a single action firearm

Hm....that's interesting. How is it considered a handgun if it can be fired from the shoulder? I'm confused...

Not rostered so you can't transfer one except through a roster-exempt transfer like a PPT or intrafamily.

The roster exemptions for the handgun include single-action REVOLVERS and Single-shot pistols that meet certain dimensional requirements. The Bounty Hunter is neither, so the roster exemption does not apply to it.

ATF says that it is a handgun, not a rifle. It isn't designed to be fired from the shoulder. Just like AR-pistols aren't designed to be fired from the shoulder, even though the buffer tube could be rested against the shoulder.

Well, it is SA, not a repeater, however:

Totally forgot it was revolver specific. DOH!

...unless somebody pulls the mag spring and drops a dowel down the tube.

Yeah. It's legal to move into the state with one...not like the Taurus Judge.
