|HOPKINS & ALLEN
POLICE REVOLVER, .38 RIM FIRE...SCARCE !!
In the late 1870's Hopkins & Allen entered the existing Military and Police nomenclature revolver market. Prior to that, they were well known for high quality "Pocket Revolvers", Blue Jackets, etc... They introduced three lines, the XL No.8 Large Frame for the .44, The XL Navy in .38, and the ONLY round butt model, the XL Police in .38RF. the Police represented only a FEW hundred manufactured, the others were just as limited in production. This XL Police, Serial No. 141X is an excellent example. Most encountered today are thoroughly worn out. This 4-1/2 inch barrel, Single Action has the rounded butt, and the unusual "hump back" small hammer. It has about 90% of the original factory nickel plate, however has gray spotting "freckling on the surface. Mechanically this Police is 100% correct in ALL its working actions. There are obvious case colors still on the hammer and faded blue on the trigger. The grips show normal hand wear, no damage and have fine antique luster. ALL parts are original , and ALL factory applied markings are CLEAR and present.
The top of frame marked " XL POLICE ", and "38-100 Cal."
This is a very scarce and seldom seen Hopkins & Allen, and a unique trend setter. PRICE $1,875
