Secrets Of TV’s The Rifleman: More Than Just Guns And Good Times

Gunsmith (Angus Evans)


Fans of The Rifleman loved the classic western adventure series because of its main characters, Lucas and Mark McCain, as well as Marshal Micah Torrance. But many of the supporting, recurring characters were also beloved by fans. Eddie Quillan played gunsmith Angus Evans. He appeared twice in the fourth season: in “Marks’ Rifle” (episode 150) and “Conflict” (episode 155). He was a staple on Westerns during that time, appearing in shows such as Death Valley Days, Gunsmoke, The Guns of Will Sonnet, Daniel Boone, The Virginian, and The Wild, Wild West. His final TV role was Andy Griffith’s show, Matlock in 1987. He died in 1990.
