The Winchester 1892 is one of the historical rifles that cemented lever actions as a favorite firearm of the American Old West. Designed by none other than John M. Browning, the Chiappa Firearms’ 1892 is a true reproduction, with all parts being interchangeable with an original 1892. Metal parts are precision made on modern CNC equipment, while the beautiful wood stocks are hand finished and crafted for a perfect metal to wood fit. Chiappa manufactures models to suit anyone’s need; from the classic 1892 Takedown Rifle with an octagonal barrel to the modern performance oriented, hard chromed 1892 Alaskan, to the Mare’s Leg made famous by Hollywood.
Introduced in 1958 by the western TV series Wanted: Dead or Alive, used by Steve McQueens character, bounty hunter Josh Randall to capture or kill movie screen bad guys. The Mares Leg® version of the 1892 has captured the imagination and desire of fans and shooters alike ever since. The Mares Leg® is built from ground up as a lever action handgun with a pistol grip length stock and pistol length barrel.
