The Rifleman

In an unusual twist on the standard Western, widower Lucas McCain struggles to successfully homestead his ranch in North Fork, New Mexico territory during the 1880s, while raising his son Mark. The Marshall of North Fork has his hands full handling the weekly "bad guys," & it is frequently necessary for Lucas to pick up his modified rapid-action Winchester Rifle to protect himself, his son, and his neighbors.
