Info about this gun: HOPKINS & ALLEN ARMS COMPANY, 1902-1914 : SHOTGUNS: SINGLE SHOT GOOSE GUNS outside hammer, 8, 10, or 12 ga., were offered with barrels up to 40 inches long. H&A produced a "falling block" shotgun in most gauges circa 1887-early 1900s. Falling Blocks (FBs) in 12 ga. were built on heavy frames with the 20 and 16 gauges sharing a medium frame. Prior to 1902, some FBs were chambered for .45-70 shotshells and, today, these are rare if in good condition. From the 1890s through 1914, 38XL, 44XL shotshell guns were periodically offered in the Junior frame. After 1902, "tip-over" single shotguns were offered in Forehand designs and, later, the Davenport designs.
