"Mare's Leg"

Replica Winchester 1892 "Mare's Leg" with standard lever loop and rounded barrel- .44-40. This model also shows off the screw used to do "rapid fire". This is put in place so the user does not need to pull the trigger. The screw breaks the shots when the action is worked.
Winchester 1892 "Mare's Leg" w/ D lever loop and rounded barrel - .44-40.
Winchester 1892 "Mare's Leg" with standard lever loop, mounted with a "scope", and rounded barrel from Serenity - .44-40.


A 6 shot cut down rifle/pistol version of the Winchester 1892 rifle was used as a short carbine and called the "Mare's Leg". Though some of the Mare's Legs seen in films are cut from original Winchester 1892s, clones built by Marlin, Rossi and Puma are also seen in chains of commerce. Since the front sight was removed with the cut down of the barrel, many examples of the Mare's Leg remove the rear sight to lighten the firearm. It is not necessary since the gun is a 'point and shoot' close quarters firearm.

Per ATF regulations, any 'pistol' cut down from a firearm that was originally a rifle is a 'short barreled rifle' and subject to all the restrictions of short barreled long guns. The Puma M-92, and Rossi "Ranch Hand" clones of the Mare's leg are built from the factory as a pistols, so per ATF regulations, they are handguns and not classified as short barreled rifles.
