    **MINT BORE**Hopkins & Allen Manufacturing Company USA 1871 Patent ‘XL’ No.6 .38 Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre Factory Nickel Plated 5 Shot Single Action Revolver With Octagonal Barrel & Sheathed Trigger. Sn 18258:8 - 18258:8

    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.6’ 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.6’. It retains its original factory nickel finish with areas of staining and scuffing consistent with age. It has a 2 ¼” octagonal steel barrel (7” 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.6 Pat Mar 28 1871'. One barrel flat is numbered ‘657’. The pistol has an unusual loading mechanism. The cylinder spigot is removed bty depression of a lever on the frame and the cylinder can then be swung out to allow loading of the chambers. It has a sheathed trigger, steel hammer and undamaged polished bone 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 18258:8
