Hopkins & Allen
I just bought a Hopkins & Allen Mnfg. Co.falling block rifle which I, and the prior owner, assumed to be in 32 Rimfire. Inspecting the gun at home I found the gun is marked 32 WCF which I know is 32-20. The chamber depth appears to be the right depth for 32 WCF and the firing pin is centered as it should be.
There are no model numbers on the gun but from my research I belive the gun is a no. 932. Maybe! The mechanical condition appears very sound for it's over 100 years of age. I may have a shooter.
Does anyone have any additional info on this rifle? Do you think it would be ok to fire it with cowboy 32-20 loads? Why do I do this stuff?
