    literally the perfect Truck Gun.

    12" barrel with hot 357 and no cylinder gas leak issues.

    can be sorta shoulder fired, but still can be carried like a pistol or on the back holster.

    can ride nice in mini rifle case. compact form

    twirl to reload. gives you reason to twirl gun 🙂

    OK two handed off hand shooting better than revolver or pistol or even real rifle (lighter)

      that's dumb as frick and so are you. All the effectiveness of a pistol but twice the bulk. Less than half the rate of fire of a single action. Can't even match the capacity of a revolver.

      It's only slightly less shit than an obrez.

        you don't get it, so I'll further expound for benefit of others.

        Truck Gun is just that, for the truck or near the truck, but should be jack of all trades, master of none.

        being able to sorta shoulder it is a game changer VS any pistol, and that goes triple for 99% of shooters. reason US Army went to Carbine to replace 1911 wasn't anything wrong with 1911, its just that only a few people can become effective with a pistol and that is only after months of training and those skills are perishable.

        but even carbine is kinda two big and can't be retrieved or put into action from behind truck seat or from inside truck. Mare's Leg CAN be shot single handed, and XL (for a 'pistol') sight radius helps.

        Mare's Leg will be legally a pistol, not a SBR, and generally steers clear of most legal nonsense.

        AR pistols are OK, but Mare's Leg is cooler and doesn't need legally problematic "brace" to shoot well. Mare's Leg you can hand to someone with no or little gunz skillz and they will be OK, AR pistol not so much.

        Why would you need a sawn-off gun insead of a handgun? Unless you live in an environment where handguns are rare (like WWI Russia) or you can't afford a handgun (but you can afford a long gun, that's kinda strange)

            And a regular handgun is better for all those things. The only reason to make a sawn-off is if you couldn't get access to a handgun so your only option is to chop down a long gun. But shortening a levergat is a lot of work because of the magazine under the barrel. it's not so simple as lopping the barrel off a Mosin to make an Obrez or the chopping a break-action shotgun to make a Lupara.

                Given that most people carry handguns over SBRs and SBSes by a large margin it's pretty clear they're better for most applications.

                > yet they are amazingly popular and have been for centuries
                Yeah, when people couldn't get anything else. Anyway, things like Obrezes, coach guns, etc are well documented. I'm still waiting on a source talking about a legit mares leg from the old west days.

              I disagree. A 10" barrel with no cylinder gap is better than a 6" or 4.75" with a gap. A gun held in two hands with a long sight radius will be more accurate than one held in one hand with a short sight radius. It's also a lot easier to load a lever gun with a loading gate than almost any contemporary revolver.

                Here's where I can tell you've never shot a mare's leg, or even thought about how you might hold it. They are very awkward to aim. The "stock" is much too short to shoulder, while trying to hold it out in front of you is really awkward unless one of your arms is about eight inches longer than the other.

                > It's also a lot easier to load a lever gun with a loading gate than almost any contemporary revolver.
                It's much easier to carry two revolvers than one mare's leg.

                And here's how we know you've never shot one either since you have literally no idea what hip firing, unbraced shooting and natural aim are

        Cool, got any info on that? I've been to many museums full of old west guns--Woolaroc, Cody, etc, and never seen a historical example. I've never seen one at auction either, and I've been trolling high end auctions for 8 years now. I'd love to see a source.

          here's another. this type is called a 'blanket gun' and was used by Injuns to shoot at Cowboys.
          Also, if you went to Cody, you weren't paying attention because they have a bunch on display and many more on the collector level

                A mares leg is a cut down lever action, not some other cut down rifle. When people say "mares leg", they specifically mean a lever action with a short barrel and a short stock. I bet you're a war tourist.
