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 version of repeating rifle, this recognizable shooting 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 a replica of that famous made-for-TV sidearm.
