So How Many People Did The Rifleman Actually kill?

Posted: April 1, 2017 in Death, Things I Love, TV

You all know my love for the old TV series The Rifleman. Lucas McCain fights for all that is righteous, man. On a whim I decided to research how many bad guys Lucas killed in the 4 1/2 year duration of the show. The answer? 120. That’s 2.5 per episode. And of course, somebody documented them all in the video below. Yikes! Other Rifleman fun facts:

Chuck Conners, who played The Rifleman, played both professional baseball and basketball.

Johnny Crawford, who played the son of his widowed father Lucas in the show, began his career as a Mouseketeer.

Finally, I owned the Rifleman toy as a kid. Thanks Mom and Dad! 

Anyway, check out all of The Rifleman’s kills. Wild stuff.

BONUS VIDEO: Rifleman Outtakes! Good stuff!

    Hi, I didn’t see the one where he killed Sammy Davis Jr (Tip Corey) in season 4 episode 21. I think there are some others that are missing. I estimated around 150 kills but some day I’ll watch them and take the count. Love the video and the rifle looks cool. Thanks man.

    How in the world did Lucas McCain wrestler with Abe Lincoln in the 1880s and he died in 1865 ??????

  3. Jamie says:

    Anybody have a list of episodes where nobody got killed? Just curious. The only one I can think of offhand is “Sidewinder,” where young Gridley Mau shows up to kill Lucas (which of course, doesn’t happen!). Oh, and maybe “Mail Order Groom” and “The Lonesome Bride”? The lighter episodes.

Gimme a holler.
