This Hopkins and Allen rifle is a replica of a clever Underhammer Rifle, most often made in New York or New England. The action and barrel are finished to a dark blue with a brass ramrod pipe mounted directly to the barrel. The stock varnish is smooth, with satin sheen, and a few scattered handling marks. Stocked with a 14-1/4" trigger reach, this rifle should fit todays average shooter well. This rifle weighs only 7.6 pounds.

This .45 caliber underhammer rifle has a 32" octagon barrel, marked on the top flat Numrich Arms Hopkins & Allen West Hurley N.Y. The "Offhand". The barrel is rifled with eight lands and grooves with a slow twist for patched round balls. The bore is bright. We recommend our Hornady .440" round ball, Ox-Yoke .015" bulk patching cut at the muzzle, lubricated with our Mink-Oil tallow patch lubricant. The rear sight is a semi-buckhorn sight with step adjustment for elevation. The front sight is a bead with integral dovetail base.

Stocked in walnut, stained to deep reddish undertone, and fitted with a hard rubber buttplate Underhammers are a correct style from this 1830 - 1850 period. A sturdy 3/8" hickory ramrod, with 10-32 threaded brass tip is carried in a brass rod pipe mounted under the barrel. Shaped without a cheek piece, equally suited to a right or left hand shooter. The forearm does have one small chip around a pin hole, which was likely lifted during removal of the forearm.

Our bottom view shows the heart of this underhammer action. The hammer strikes the nipple directly, providing direct ignition into the powder chamber, with no turns. This underhammer rifle requires a 1/4-32 nipple, #RNA-S, but we recommend our special extra long Underhammer nipple, #UHF-5S, which provides a bit more nozzle effect for the percussion cap flash. Nipples are sold separately. See our Catalog for several other choices. The nipple is seated in a deep brass flash cup to protect the wood from cap spray.

This ingenious action is very simple, with few moving parts, typical of Yankee Ingenuity from this period. Notice the curved trigger, which has excellent trigger geometry, and smooth trigger release. The large trigger bow acts as the mainspring for the hammer.

This underhammer rifle is used with some marks on the stock as well as the blued finish. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund.
