OVERVIEW

A famous historical old-west rifle with a famous old-Hollywood modification! This non-firing replica is an excellent rendition of a lever-action rifle that conquered the west, with working parts and real wood stock and foregrip. Weighs and feels like the real gun!

John Browning completed the prototype of his improved lever action in less than a month (he promised the manufacturer he would have it ready by then or it would be free!), and the rest is history, both real and Hollywood glamorized. The 1892 has been featured in countless Western TV shows and movies, but this version was popularized by a single TV show, The Rifleman, in the late 1950s to the early 1960s.

The creators of the series needed a gimmick to differentiate the show from all the other westerns that were being churned out at the time, and they came up with a "spin-cocking" firing modification that allowed the hero to use the oversized cocking lever to fire the gun in rapid-fire succession. Cattle rustlers and evil banker-types didn't have a chance. And boy, was it dramatic! (Of course, you can find clips from the show on the internet.) Here's your chance to own a cool, unique version of a TV-history-altering gun.
