Editorial Reviews

Exciting western action, topflight production values and a strong and consistent cast of characters made "The Rifleman," starring Chuck Conners, into a highly successful TV series during the late 50s and continuing into 1963. Connors, as a lightning-fast, super accurate marksman and devoted, single father, imbued many of the episodes with a wholesome, moral lesson. The relationship between Lucas McCain (Connors) and his young son, Mark (Johnny Crawford), is both believable and admirable, another big plus for the show's devoted fans.

MAIL ORDER GROOM: The notorious Proffit brothers have been badgering Agnes, the old maid of the town to keep her from buying valuable ranch land they want for themselves. But soon after the stagecoach rolls into Northfolk carrying the husband-to-be that Agnes advertised for back east-the badgering turns to bullying and beyond. Soon the Rifleman intervenes and tries desperately to keep a murder from ruining a marriage.

THE OUTLAW'S INHERITANCE: The town council votes unanimously to have Lucas represent them when they make their bid to have a proposedrailroad spur come to Northfolk. But a crooked businessman from the rival town of Center City, plots to win the lucrative bid and discredit the Rifleman by associating him with a notorious bank robber.

DAY OF THE HUNTER: Legendary old Indian scout Cass Callicot shows up in town with a challenge. He hopes to outshoot the Rifleman and prove that he still possesses the marksman skills he had in his youth. Wanting to avoid a shootout, Lucas brushes the old man off resulting in a tense confrontation which treatens young Mark.

3.0 out of 5 stars For casual fans of "The Rifleman" October 26, 2005
Format:DVD
This three episode collection issued by Alpha Video contains the same three episodes that have been issued by various companies specializing in public domain material; in fact, if you already own any DVDs of the Chuck Connors Western "The Rifleman," be sure to compare the episodes on your discs with those contained on Alpha's so as to avoid possible duplication. The episodes include "Outlaw's Inheritance," "Day of the Hunter," and "Mail Order Groom." For casual fans of the series who would like to include a few episodes in their classic TV collection, this DVD will fit the bill nicely. But serious fans of "The Rifleman" will want to check out the various official DVD box sets issued by MPI for the best episode selection and best audio/visual quality.

Trivia Note: John Anderson guest stars in two of the episodes, "Day of the Hunter" and "Mail Order Groom." These two episodes were originally broadcast just a week apart!

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE... December 19, 2011
Format:DVD
If you are just looking for a few random episodes, this DVD is peachy. However, the episodes you get are apparently different depending on which Rifleman Volume 1 DVD they decide send you - will you get 3 or 4 episodes? Which episodes will they be?... Who knows. Good luck.

This DVD was supposed to have 4 episodes: "The Sharpshooter", "The Marshall", "End of a Young Gun" & "Home Ranch", two of which written by Sam Peckinpah. Those are on the OTHER Rifleman Volume 1 - which is the one I ordered. But what is really on the disk I received is 3 episodes: "Mail Order Groom", "The Outlaw's Inheritance", & "Day of the Hunter".

Looking through the customer reviews, there are reviews from people who got the 3-episode disk, as well as the 4-episode disk, and then one review from someone who got 5 episodes! Ridiculous. Apparently, somewhere in the system, there is a drunk monkey randomly assigning which Volume 1 you will get. Just be aware, you might not get what you think you are getting.

I wanted 4 episodes & got 3. If you want the 3, you might get the 4. If anyone wants to swap, let me know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want More? April 24, 2012
By Wiley
Format:DVD
Anyone who would like to have the complete series on DVD can make their wishes known by contacting LGL Productions, owner of the franchise, through the website, therifleman.net. The full series hasn't had an authorized release because of concerns about sufficient demand to recover the cost. But LGL is reconsidering the possibility of such a release and if enough people express an interest, maybe it will happen soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars BE CAREFUL November 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
ALTHOUGH THE FIRST DVD SENT TO ME WAS LOST OR SOMETHING, I WAS SENT ANOTHER AND ONLY BECAUSE I CALLED THEM. FOR SOME REASON THERE IS NO TRACKING OF THE PACKAGE INVOLVED SO I WOULD ADVISE ALL OF YOU TO KEEP A GOOD EYE ON THE EXPECTED DELIVERY DATE.
THE RIFLEMAN DVD ITSELF WAS GREAT BUT ALL THREE EPISODES WERE DUDS - NO ACTION AT ALL - JUST DRAMA. I WOULD ADVISE ANYONE GETTING THIS OR ANY OTHER RIFLEMAN DVD TO MAKE SURE THEY RECOGNIZE THE EPISODES ON THE DVD OTHERWISE RISK THE CHANCE OF GETTING DUDS OR NON-ACTION EPISODES AND BEING DISAPPOINTED OVERALL.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rifleman November 5, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Classic western action at it's finest! Bonanza, Big Valley, and Gunsmoke are other good choices. The thing that makes this show good is the modified rifle/shotgun that can shoot rapid fire rounds despite this taking place in the old west. The opening theme song CLEARLY displays this action. One of my favorite westerns EVER to this day. Tombstone and Young Guns are good modern movies but the Rifleman is an all-time classic. Blast from the past that stands the test of time. 'Nuff said.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised September 19, 2013
By Quentin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like others, I expected the first four episodes of The Rifleman. Instead there are three different episodes. Also the video quality is terrible, worse than a VHS tape. Returning it.

Anyone know if the first four episodes are available?

Somewhat disappointed. Only 3 episodes, and kind of grainy. In looking on internet, the owners of the Rifleman franchise seem to be keeping their episodes on a short leash. Read more
