Hopkins & Allen Forehand Model 1901 .38 (I think)

Hi all,

I have recently picked up this firearm and have been trying to find out more info on it. I believe it is the .38 cal version of the 1901! I really like this gun and of coarse id like to somewhat restore it as it has not been taken care of! I wanted to know any tips or advice or concerns you might have on getting this gun operational(hopefully firing) i took it to a local gun shop and unfortunately their smith wont work on this gun. While there they did point out that the spring on the barrel latch was loose and that was a major concern of theirs as far as it functioning.

I would like to know your thoughts on the gun and whether it can shoot again one day!
I have also tightened the spring some and it seems to be better already, but i was hoping someone with experience with this gun might lend some advice!

Thanks

Patrick

I've own ton of top break guns in new condition and they are fun to shoot , but the springs break easy and a gun in near mint condition will only bring only $175. The labor cost to fix them makes them wall hangers and not worth fixing unless it is the gun a family treasure .

Thanks for the info man! I dont want to sell it though, i am keeping it for my own collection either way i just didnt know if it was worth trying to fix/if it would even be able to fire if i fixed its issues.

Nice looking pistol. I only have one topbreak and don't shoot it very often.
