Hopkins & Allen Arms shotgun
Some kind soul over at Culver's Shooting Page suggested I post my query here:
A friend inherited a Hopkins & Allen Arms single shot 12ga. shotgun. There is no manufacture date on gun. My web search indicates manufacture between 1896 and 1915. Would this shotgun have fired black powder shells or the more modern smokeless fodder?...or is my information too little to make an assessment?
I think, if we can get the missing stock replaced and the parts are in working order, he plans to shoot it.
