Back in the heyday of the TV Western, Steve McQueen, the star of “Wanted: Dead or Alive,” rode across black-and-white screens toting a sidearm like nothing any lawman or outlaw had carried before. A cut-down, modified lever action rifle, this iconic firearm could be holstered like a pistol but fired with the speed of a lever gun. Nicknamed the Mare’s Leg, this innovative weapon brought swift justice to outlaws every week and rose to fame as the real star of the short-lived show.
Now, fans of those classic westerns and collectors of innovative firearms can holster this lever action pistol manufactured in the spirit and style of the original made-for-TV classic.
Like all Henry Rifles, each Mare’s leg sports a select, handcrafted American Walnut stock cut to the exact specification of the gun used on the television series. The large loop lever and the legendary crisp Henry action make it easy to enjoy those rapid-fire repeating shots – just like Steve McQueen.
Like the full-sized rifles these pistols are based on, the Mare’s Leg features a side loading gate on its gleaming brass receiver, allowing you to keep the five-round tube magazine fully loaded on the fly. They have also retained the removable magazine tube, making for safe and easy unloading after a day at the range.
When a standard lever action rifle doesn’t deliver enough flair, we’d recommend unholstering your Big Boy Mare’s Leg.
