Rossi. It's a John Browning design, and they don't come no better.
Yes, the Rossi .454 was discontinued a couple of years back. I have read a lot of material about it and from what I understand, they are great guns, especially if you only stick with .45 Colt and upper end .45 Colt Loads. The .454 loads, after repeated use, tend to loosen the gun up to extremes and there have also been many issues resulting from the extremely high pressures produced by the .454 round.
