In depth with a Henry Arms Mare’s Leg on a snowy day (VIDEO)

Rimfire master 22Plinkster gives his insight into the Henry Mare’s Leg pistol in both its .22LR and WMR variants with some Shorts thrown in for good measure.

The cut-down and modified lever action Mare’s Leg, made famous by Steve McQueen in “Wanted: Dead or Alive,” may not be practical for a whole lot of applications or legal for sale in New York or California– but it is fun to shoot and a myriad of companies from Brazil to Spain and right here at home have given the concept a try, with Henry being arguably at the top of the food chain.

And as ‘Plink advises, they do take a little bit to get used to as the mid-size length is a bit awkward. But in the end he seems to make it work.
