    have a 12g s/s in fair shape with the numbers stamped behind the trigger housing "125". I believe it was made by hopkins and allen. Any additional info or age is appreciated.

    Shotguns with the name Cannon Breech are "Trade Brand Name" shotguns and were made by Stevens Arms & Tool Company, Harrington & Richardson Arms Co and Hopkins & Allen. They were made for and sold by the Simmons Hardware Company of St. Louis, MO. The number you give is the serial number of the gun.
