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.

Between 1902 and 1914. If its a sidelock, between 1906 and 1909.

Hopkins and Allen took over the Forehand name in 1903 and continued until 1915.

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.

Start with - they sometimes have Hopkins & Allen parts

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.

Impossible to value with just a serial number.

Have H&A 32cal with serial number z249 .How old and whats it worth.

Hopkins and Allen purchased Forehand Arms in 1902, so sometime between then and 1915 when the company closed.

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.

I have a Hopkins Allen shot gun 44 cal. model 299 it was my grandmothers can you help me anyone.

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.

Before 1916- That is when H&A closed their doors.
