    Nice H&A XL 30 Long - Safety Lock .30 Rimfire 5 Shot Spur Trigger Pocket Revolver.


    Manufactured circa 1875 this Hopkins & Allen XL .30 Long is in good cosmetic and excellent mechanical condition and has the cocking safety feature, the ‘Safety Lock’, where the hammer rests in a notch between the cartridges (to prevent accidental firing of a cartridge).

    The XL .30 Long is probably the most scarce of the spur trigger revolvers Hopkins & Allen produced.

    Stamped on the top of the frame, in three lines:

    HOPKINS & ALLEN MFG. CO.

    XL. 30 LONG

    It measures 6 + 1/4 inches long with a 2 + 3/8th inch long barrel.

    Nickel plated with rosewood grips. In totally original and un-restored condition. The grips are in excellent condition and the nickel retains around 60% of its original finish.

    Cosmetically, its been used and has powder burns as expected.

    Mechanically, the cylinder cycling is spot on, the lock-up is very good with a very strong mainspring.

    The barrel rifling is quite strong although grey (its not been cleaned).

    All matching serial numbers. Serial number 511 under the left hand grip, in pencil on the inside of the right hand grip, on the flat on the underside of the barrel, on the front of the cylinder and on the cylinder pin.

    Measures approximately 6 + ¼ inches long with a 2 + 3/8th inch barrel.

    All-in-all a very good example of a scarce model In original un-messed-about-with condition, I hope my pictures tell the story.

    I’ve tried to describe this revolver as honestly and as accurately as I can, if you have any questions, or if you’d like more photos please email me through the website, only too happy to respond.

    This model is made for an obsolete calibre cartridge so can be legally held in the UK as a curiosity or ornament (exempt under section 58 (2) of The Firearms Act 1968 Act, to be held as a curiosity or ornament).

    Shipping to the mainland UK and Northern Ireland only please. NO exceptions.

    Payment by bank transfer preferred or cheque is fine.

    Shipping cost is included in the offer price.

    Shipping via Royal Mail First Class Signed For Next day Delivery and I’ll email the tracking number once posted.
