Hopkins & Allen Arms Company was a US firearms manufacturing company based in Norwich, Connecticut that was founded in 1868 by Charles W. Allen, Charles A. Converse, Horace Briggs, Samuel S. Hopkins and Charles W. Hopkins. The Hopkins brothers ran the day-to-day operations of the company until it went bankrupt in 1916 and was subsequently bought by Marlin-Rockwell. Their ‘XL No.2’ pocket Model, is one of many revolvers based on S&W and Colt Patents produced in the 1860’s through to the late 1870s with dynamic or quirky names to attract sales. This is an original example of the ‘XL No.2’. It retains its original factory nickel finish with areas of staining and scuffing consistent with age. It has a 2 ¼” octagonal steel barrel (5 ¾” overall). The barrel’s bore is near mint clean and bright with crisp rifling. The top of the frame is crisply marked 'Hopkins & Allen Mfg Co XL No.2’ and with 1871-1875 patents. It has a sheathed trigger, steel hammer and undamaged ebony grips. The action is crisp and correctly single action only. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre rim fire revolver no licence is required to own this pistol in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 18258:9
