the Hopkins and Allen break open revolvers are black powder shooters. they date back to the late 1890's up to early 1900's. I believe your pat. date should read 1885, not 1985 ????? you should not fire modern ammo out of these old timers.

They were made in 22cal. 32 cal and 38 S&W caliber. 38 S&W cal. is NOT a 38 special, but rather a shorter case.
