I saw an episode of The Rifleman with Sammy Davis Jr. Was he really that fast with a gun?

The late entertainer, who was a guest in two episodes of the beloved Western series, really was a fast-draw artist and fancy gun spinner. Among the Hollywood stars of the 1960s, Davis, Glenn Ford, Clint Eastwood, Robert Fuller, Ben Cooper, Hugh O'Brian and Audie Murphy were known for being quick on the draw.
