Hopkins & Allen Parts
I'm looking for a bit of help. A few years back, I inherited my father's gun collection upon his death. In this small collection was a tiny .32 cal 5-shot revolver. Over the years, I've enjoyed firing it on the range and even loaned it once. That was a mistake. The revolver was returned with the loading gate snapped off. I have been unable to locate a replacement part. This is a very small frame revolver, looks to be intended for a lady's purse. The only markings are on the top strap over the cylinder -HOPKINS & ALLEN MFG Co PAT MAR 28 71 JAN 5 88 X.L.8 DOUBLE ACTION 32 CAL CENTRE FIRE- The serial number appears to be on the trigger group, partially obstructed by the frame. Ammunition is hard to come by, but well worth the extra cost as it was a great "introductory" weapon for some I've had the pleasure of introducing to the world of shooting. It's the most "non-threatening " gun I own and has a bit of sentimental value. I'm loath to use it in any way with the loading gate missing and would dearly love to repair it. Can anyone help in finding a new loading gate for it?
