    This is an interesting revolver. A later Hopkins and Allen Defender model revolver in 32 RF obsolete calibre with high quality flying Eagle grips. The revolver is in overall excellent condition and cocks and locks perfectly.

    The interesting thing about the revolver is that it is accompanied by an old hand written tag that states that the "Gun was used in the robbery of the Sacremento and Northern Depot". The vendor told me he had bought the gun in the early 1970's and the person who sold it told him that his father was a Sheriff and this came out of an evidence locker that was being disposed of because of age and to raise funds for the police department.
    It is highly unusual to find these little guns with any provenance and this is a fine example that could be researched as Railroad robberies were always reported in detail. Revolver looks better than the photographs.
