Mare’s Leg

Lever Action Pistol

View Rifle Specifications

Steve McQueenBack 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 version of repeating rifle, this recognizable shootin’ iron could be holstered like a pistol but fired with the speed of lever-action rifle. Nicknamed the Mare’s Leg, this innovative weapon swiftly brought outlaws to justice 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.

Built in the USA, to Henry’s world-renowned standards of quality, the Mare’s Leg is available in your choice of .45 COLT or in .22 S/L/LR.

The Henry Mare’s Leg .45 Colt is a modified variation of the Henry model H006C Big Boy .45 Colt. The Henry Mare’s Leg .22 S/L/LR a modified variation of the model H001 Henry Lever Action.
