In the golden era of the TV Western, Steve Mcqueen, the star of “Wanted: Dead or Alive,” rode across black-and-white screens with a never-before-seen sidearm. His cut-down repeater, the Mare’s Leg, could be holstered like a revolver but fired with the speed and precision of a lever action rifle.
This innovative weapon brought outlaws to justice every week – and rose to fame as the real star of the series.
The show was short-lived, but the legend of the Mare’s Leg lived on. Now, fans of classic Westerns and collectors of unique firearms can saddle up with the Henry Classic Rimfire Mare’s Leg – a lever action pistol manufactured in the spirit and style of the original.
Built in the USA to Henry’s exacting standards of quality and craftsmanship, this Mare’s Leg variant ups the rimfire ante, chambering the powerful .22 Magnum. Each Mare’s Leg wears handcrafted and finely checkered walnut furniture set – cut to a similar specification as the original. The standard large loop lever aids in rapid-fire repeating shots, and a receiver-mounted saddle ring adds some Western flair to the package.
The Mare’s Leg .22 Magnum is a lever-action featherweight at 4.5 lbs. It measures 24.5” in overall length. Fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sights and a hooded blade front sight sit atop the 12.875” blued steel barrel, and a grooved receiver allows for easy optic mounting.
Today’s outdoorsmen, survivalists, ranchers, and varminters value the Mare’s Leg .22 Magnum for the same reasons Mcqueen did – it’s light, ultra-portable, quick to draw from a scabbard and just plain fun. That’s to say, unholstering a Mare’s leg won’t make you a lawman of the Wild West, but it will certainly make you feel like one.
