Childhood dream fulfilled!
PRICE: I grew up watching "Wanted: Dead or Alive" on TV, so when I saw Denix's Mare's Leg in a shop, I knew I would be buying one. I didn't buy the one in the shop, because I knew if Replica Weaponry was selling it, they'd sell it cheaper. They were, and that saved me a about $50 compared to other sources I checked. QUALITY: This replica is made of wood and metal, no plastic, has good weight and detail, and has a solid feel to it. I don't hear or feel any loose parts when I handle it. Even the sound it makes when you cock it sounds right. realistic. The cocking lever, hammer, and trigger work, and the hammer has two stops. The loading gate does not open. The lever loop is smaller than Steve McQueen's TV version. (I did find a more accurate replica, but it was an air rifle that cost $170.) SHIPPING: I had the rifle shipped to a different address than my billing address, and Replica Weaponry checked with me to confirm the address before they shipped it. Extra points for Good Customer Service. EXTRA: Denix will tell you not to flip cock the rifle, but it can be done! I won't do it very often, but it's fun to know I can if I want to. I just ordered the holster, and I'm really looking forward to my next cosplay/steampunk/western day.
