SWEET LITTLE 7-Shot .22 Hopkins & Allen BLUE JACKET Single Action Revolver
c1880s ENGRAVED, NICKEL, ROSEWOOD
Here we present an antique Hopkins & Allen “BLUE JACKET No. 2” Spur Trigger Revolver in .22 Rimfire (short), made circa the 1870s-80s. These pocket-sized revolvers and many like them were made by various companies such that the price easily undercut better known and established companies like Colt. As a result, many of Colt’s similar lines were shut down for their inability to compete. During a time when many, if not most people carried a firearm, these affordable little revolvers were small enough to conceal and carry, yet provide some level of protection or peace of mind, even when the town did not allow firearms within its limits. Hopkins & Allen used two different patent dates on this model, Mar. 28, 1871 and May 27, 1879. This revolver has the later Patent date, making it manufactured between the early to mid-1880s.
The overall condition is excellent. Strong and tight action. Reflective bore. Firm, smooth rosewood grips. Sharp engravings. Numbers match. A little gem of a hideout gun from the late-1800s!
