I have an old hopkin allen revolver ser.no. 292. Does anyone know how to get manufacture date on this gun?It is nickel plated with a 4 inch barrel I have a neighbor that brings me these old guns all the time. Not sure wether to fire it or not?

with this limited description i really can't tell you anything about this revolver except it was made before 1917. that is generally accepted as the year H&A went out of business. as to firing it DON"T.
