Winchester 1892

The Winchester Model 1892 is the signature weapon of Lucas McCain (Chuck Connors). The famous opening shows Lucas firing 12 shots from his Winchester in less than 5 seconds! The rifle is fitted with a large lever loop to allow one hand reloading. There were actually 3 prop weapons used on the show, 2 true Winchesters and a Spanish El Tigre used for stunts.

As you can see Lucas tapped in a machine screw into his trigger guard. Every time he worked the action the rifle would fire. A simple twist of the screw would disable this feature for normal operation.
