The Flip Special - the Original "Rifleman's Rifle"
The rifle we produce is an authentic replica of the famous Winchester rifle used in the western series "The Rifleman" (1958 to 1963) starring Chuck Connors and Johnny Crawford.
Thank you for your interest in the most famous rifle in the history of television westerns. This legendary rifle has become an icon of old western strength and honesty, and is now desired by many who remember those times.
This rifle is now available to the public, (see photos below). Each rifle that I create is exactly like the original one used by Chuck Connors on The Rifleman.
Since the jigs were developed from one of the original rifles used on the show courtesy of Mr. Moe Hunt, I am able to duplicate every feature, right down to the drilled hole for the set screw for rapid fire. The rifles I make are fully functioning, just like on the show. The Winchester rifles I make are in 44-40 caliber just like on the T.V. show.
I learned exactly how to make the authentic Rifleman’s Rifle from Mr. Maurice (Moe) Hunt who knew Chuck Connors for 30 years. He made the last three Rifleman rifles for Chuck Connors. Reportedly, Chuck gave him a rifle from the show which I inherited as a result of handling his estate.
