    I ordered an Allen Under Hammer action. This is not the style of the more common Hopkins & Allan sold by Numerich arms. This was made by a shooter and machinist Allen Foundry. After a few phone calls, I found it is sold out of stock and no current information for deliveries. Did find out that he moved his shop, is 85 years young, and nobody even knows if he is still with us. I found one on the west coast and dropped the coin, I’m glad I did. Mr. Allen was an accomplished target shooter and said he preferred a single trigger to a double set, thus this came into being. It appears to be lost wax casting and could be browned as is, all major mating surfaces come machined for basic use. I envision this as a HiWall knock off, and with some draw filing and surface cleaning up, it is a blank canvas to be blued or better yet engraved.

     

    It looks similar to a Hi-Wall doesn’t it?

     

    it comes apart with 2 screws, 1 is hidden.

     

    Full cock position, it does have a half cock. Very nice trigger out of the box. The cap nipple screws straight into bottom of barrel, lock time and ignition on this is expected to be fast.
