Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 5557


I have a Belknap Hardware rifle, 22 short, falling block and lever has a spur behind the trigger, takedown, 24" octagon barrel, "Nitro Hunter" with sheep head stamped on side of receiver, rear Marble folding sight, Lyman #2 tang sight, checkering on the forearm and stock. I belive it is a Hopkins and Allen rifle. Ser Number is 33434. It also has a name stamped in the stock (W.H. McCue)which looks original. If it is a H & A, can you tell what dates Hopkins & Allen mfg for Belmont and maybe when this gun was mfg? Thanks.


Nitro Hunter rifles were made for the Belknap Hardware Co. in Louisville Kentucky in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Hopkins and Allen as well as by the Crescent Fire Arms Company.
