American Hopkins & Allen Arms Company 1870 Patent XL .41 Cal Rim Fire Single Shot (Colt) Derringer with Pivot Octagonal Barrel. Sn 16946 - 16946
Hopkins & Allen Arms Company was a U.S. firearms manufacturing company based in Norwich, Connecticut that was founded in 1868 by Charles W. Allen, Charles A. Converse, Horace Briggs, Samuel S. Hopkins and Charles W. Hopkins. The Hopkins brothers ran the day-to-day operations of the company until it went bankrupt in 1916 and was subsequently bought by Marlin-Rockwell. Known as the ‘XL’ range of pistols, these derringers & revolvers were one of many revolvers based on S&W and Colt Patents produced in the 1860’s through to the late 1870s with dynamic or quirky names to attract sales. This is an original .41 Cal Rim Fire ‘XL’ derringer of the type made by Hopkins and Allen similar in design to Colt’s patent derringers. Our ‘XL’ derringer has a nickel plated steel frame with a sheathed trigger. It retains all of its original factory nickel plating. Its 2 ½” steel barrel pivots for loading which is achieved by depression of a steel button under the frame when the pistol is at half cock. The barrel pivots as it should and is tight and it has a small brass blade fore sight. Its rifled bore has staining and residue consistent with age and use. The top of the barrel is signed ‘XL Derringer’ and one of the barrel flats is marked ‘Pat Apr 5 1870’. It has its original American Rosewood grips which are in very good condition and secured with a single recessed brass screw bolt. Its loading and firing actions work perfectly. There are no other external visible numbers or manufacturer’s marks on this piece.

VERY RARE, German Model 1896 No.4 Bergmann (Bergman Schmeisser ) 8x22 Bergman Obsolete Calibre Early Semi Automatic Pistol Retailed By ‘Gaggenau VCS Suhl’ (V.C. Schilling). Sn 16934 - 16934
The Bergmann 1896 was a 19th-century semi-automatic pistol developed by German designer Louis Schmeisser and sold by Theodor Bergmann's company. The pistol was a contemporary of the Mauser C96 and Borchardt C-93 pistols. Bergmann himself later went on to design one of the earliest practical and successful sub-machine guns, the MP-18.This is an original and very rare to find Bergmann No. 4 model 1896 semi automatic pistol in 8x22 Bergman obsolete calibre. The No.4’s cartridge was much less tapered than previous Bergmann cartridges (and not bottlenecked). These pistols appear to have been capable of using the later 8mm Simplex cartridge as well. The original No.4 cartridge used a 22mm long case, while the later Simplex used an 18mm case. When the 8×22 ammunition was no longer produced, it is likely that pistol owners would have switched to using the slightly more available 8×18 cartridges. At any rate, based on the other Bergmann ammo and the size of the 8×22 case, it is a reasonable supposition that the 8mm Bergmann would have been roughly equivalent to the .32 ACP in power. The pistols were subjected to Military trials by Swiss, German and Belgian Governments. (References: Ezell, Edward C. Handguns of the World . Stackpole Books, New York, 1981. Reinhart, Christian and am Rhyn, Michael. Fastfeuerwaffen II. Wilson, R.K. Textbook of Automatic Pistols . Samworth, 1934 (reprinted by Wolfe Publishing, Prescott AZ, 1990). Our example has undamaged blued metal work which has even patina and original chequered walnut grips. The pistol is missing some internal parts but the pitol cocks and dry fires. The slide moves and locks back and the hinged magazine loading plate for 5 round clip operates as it should. The pistol measures 10 ¼” overall length and has a 4 ½” round steel barrel. The bore is clean and it has a block & blade fore sight. The rear sight consists of a grooved notch frame. The left side of the frame is stamped ‘Patent Brevete C.G.D.G’. The right side is numbered ‘2870’and has the cartouche of ‘Gaggenau VCS Suhl’ (V.C. Schilling) who retailed pistols for Bergman. The trigger is numbered ‘11’. The price for this very rare early semi automatic pistol includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre rim fire derringer no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 16934
