There is no serial number data for the Company Hopkins and Allen in the private sector available.This firm was in business from 1867-1916.No laws required serial numbers at that time,and those that were marked with a serial number have no records remaining today.If you have a single shot shotgun,these were made from 1887-1902.If the markings say Hopkins and Allen Manufg.Co.Norwich,Conn on the gun then this was made from before 1896.If you have a double barrel shotgun,then these were made from 1902-1916,when they went out of business.
There is noway to tell what gague a shotgun is just from the serial number. Take it to a gunsmith.
100 USD or so
Can't be told with just the sn.
Utility grade shotgun, 50-100 USD or so
Between 1902 and 1914. If its a sidelock, between 1906 and 1909.
No sn data published that I know of.
Hopkins and Allen took over the Forehand name in 1903 and continued until 1915.
i just like numbers, that's all :D
If it is Hopkins & Allen MFG Co, sometime between 1868 and 1898. Hopkins & Allen ARMS Co would be from 1898 to 1915. A 16 gauge would more likely (but not certainly) have been made after 1900.
Sorry, that is a serial number, not a model number. Forehand & Wadsworth was acquired by Hopkins & Allen in 1902. Due to a number of problems, the H&A company closed for good in 1917. Your shotgun is likely from the time between those two dates.
You need to provide the serial number
50-100 USD or so
i have a single barreal shot gun with the serial number s 3641 can you tell me what year this is and what it's worth

Impossible to value with just a serial number.
1870-1910 or so
If the shotgun is marked Hopkins and Allen Manufacturing Company, Norwich Conn. it was made between circa 1880-1885 and 1898. If marked Hopkins and Allen Arms Company, it was manufactured between 1898 and 1915. No records are available to give a more exact date of manufacture.
Start with gunpartscorp.com - they sometimes have Hopkins & Allen parts
i also own a Hopkins & Allen single shot break open shotgun with "Forehand" inscribed on its side and i recently learned from another forum that Forehand was another gun manufacturing company that was taken over by Hopkins and Allen from 1901-1902. Hopkins and Allen continued to put Forehand on their models until 1903. therefore the gun you own is dated somewhere between 1901-1903.
Single barrel, under $100. Double-barrel up to $200 unless heavily ornamented.
The Hopkins & Allen 832 was chambered in .32 RinFire Short.
Hopkins and Allen purchased Forehand Arms in 1902, so sometime between then and 1915 when the company closed.
