Hopkins and Allen Folding Hammer Revolver

The advantages of the Hopkins & Allen folding hammer lie in its compactness and neat appearance. No hammer to catch when withdrawing weapon from the pocket, but still, when needed, the hammer can be brought into use, giving the arm the advantage of either single or double action. No possible danger of accidental discharge by hammer striking against an object. As a further safeguard, the heavy lip on sear (A~), Figure 4 prevents any possibility of explosion, as the hammer cannot be released so as to let the firing, pin come in contact with the cartridge, except when the trigger is pulled back in position for firing, when it raises the sear and lets the hammer pass by. The lever spring (B), which is embodied in the solid trigger, gives a durable and effective spring, which cannot slip out of position or break. The rebounding lock further adds to the safety of the arm.

The automatic hammerless hinge revolver, Figure 4, possesses all the advantageous features of an absolutely safe hammerless revolver. The catch, which is thrown in back of the hammer by means of turning the knurled nut (C) forward, prevents any possibility of the hammer being drawn back, and thus any possibility of an accidental discharge. This revolver, as well as other models, is furnished with rebounding lock to serve as a further safeguard, and possesses the advantage of heavy lip on sear, and patent lever spring.

The automatic hinge revolvers are made in three stylesóregular hammer, folding hammer and hammerless. Figure 5 shows the action. To eject the shells hold the arm naturally in the right hand, lay the left over the barrel, placing the thumb and forefinger on the checkered parts of barrel catch. Press upward on catch as far as it will go, and then bear down on front end of barrel so as to tilt it, thus ejecting the shells. Place load in chambers and return barrel to its natural position, when the arm is ready for use. These are very superior arms. The 32 caliber is made with special small frame for pocket use and with long barrel for target practice. The 38 caliber can be furnished Police size and with long barrel and swivel ring for holster.

The Hopkins & Allen Arms Company have recently purchased the business of the Forehand Arms Company, formerly conducted at Worcester, Mass., by the Forehand Arms Company, Forehand & Wadsworth, and originally founded by Ethan Allen. They will carry on the manufacture of most of the Forehand line, making such changes or omissions as may be necessary to meet present conditions, and for use with nitro powders. See Forehand Arms.
