The Henry® Mare's Leg is a fast handling Lever-Action Pistol based on the cut-down, modified rifle used by Steve McQueen in late 1950s TV Westerns. The Henry Mare's Leg in .45 Colt is a modified variation of the Henry model H006C Big Boy®. The Mare's Leg is an exceptionally good-looking firearm, featuring a brass receiver, brass buttplate and barrel band, and a blued barrel and lever. The gold bead front sight is dovetailed into the barrel, and the fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight has a reversible white diamond insert. The receiver has a solid top with side ejection. There is no loading port on the side of the receiver as ammunition is loaded directly into the tubular magazine from the top. Henry utilizes an internal transfer bar safety that prevents hammer contact with the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled. The rifle cannot fire from being dropped onto the hammer, nor will it accidently fire if the shooter's thumb slips from the hammer while cocking. (There is no manual cross-bolt safety or traditional half-cock notch for a safety.) The Henry Mare's Leg Lever-Action Pistol is reminiscent of the late 1800s in the gun slinging west.
