Wanted Dead or Alive Rig & Rifle
This a Sale is for the Famous Mare's Leg Holster and Gun. The Gun is a Denix NON-FIRING Replica !
The Mare’s Leg was the name given to a customized shortened rifle by
Steve McQueen’s character on the television series Wanted: Dead or Alive
(1958–1961). McQueen’s character was named Josh Randall, and the gun
has also been referred to as a Winchester Randall, or a Randall Special.
The original Mare’s Leg was made by cutting down a .44-40 caliber
Winchester Model 1892 rifle to a size that could be worn in a large leg
holster and used with one hand. The barrel was cut down to a length of
twelve (or possibly nine) inches, and much of the butt-stock was
removed. For filming three guns were actually made, each with an
enlarged loop on the cocking lever. The first gun differed in the size
of its lever enlargement, and the last gun had an octagonal barrel
instead of a round one. The actual gun being used could sometimes change
from shot to shot in a given scene. While the guns were chambered for
the .44-40 round, McQueen wore more impressive looking .45-70 rounds in
the loops of his gun belt.
