Hopkins & Allen “TRIPLE ACTION SAFETY POLICE” .32 Caliber C&R Revolver
20th Century Conceal and Carry in .32 S&W
Here we present a Hopkins & Allen Triple Action Safety Police, more commonly referred to as the “Safety Police” Revolver in .32 S&W, made in Norwich, Connecticut between 1902 and 1915. These were the last of the H&A firearms as the company suffered a financial disaster in 1916 and failed in 1917. Hopkins & Allen Manufacturing Company was a major manufacturer of rifles, shotguns, and inexpensive cartridge handguns between 1868 and 1915. After an initial investment of $2000, Hopkins & Allen began operations as a producer of firearms, machinery, tools, and hardware.
After the expiration of the Rollin White Patent in 1869, they began converting their percussion revolvers to accept cartridge ammunition. In addition, they started producing a line of spur-trigger cartridge revolvers in .22 and .32 calibers. From its humble beginnings, Hopkins and Allen had grown from a small shop with 30 employees to become a major producer of firearms and an employer of 600 workers. In a state known for firearm production, Hopkins & Allen ranked third only behind Colt and Winchester. Hopkins & Allen continued to manufacture a variety of revolvers and small arms until 1915.
Many consider the Safety Police as the best of the Hopkins & Allen’s ever made, and had the company not failed, they would have been a serious contender in the mid-priced revolver market.
