Click here to hear the Rifleman theme.

Many of you grew up watching The Rifleman. One reviewer wrote, " As long as McCain had that Winchester, he was the toughest and smartest man on Earth, able to solve any problem at home or in town."* Indeed, Connors, a professional athlete, could fire 11 shots in 2.5 seconds, or so it seemed in the opening music score. Actually, the rifle only held ten rounds, so they added an extra one to fit the music. So, what rifle or rifles did the sod-busting character, Lucas McCain, use in the series? Here is a pic:

Chuck Connors played Lucas McCain, "The Rifleman."

I have no idea what make his famous rifle was, that's a interesting question.

You are correct about being a athlete as well as an actor
He played here in Boston with the Celtics for a short stint, (before my time) and I believe he also played some professional baseball.

He also did some early porn movies. No kidding!
Was He packing a rapid fire repeater back then too? :ar15:
