My father carried a Reising as a corpsman (not "corpseman") in the Pacific Theater in WWII. He never said much against it, but I got the impression it was not held in high regard.
My friend from church has a Hopkins & Allen XL Double action 22 revolver, 7 shot 2 3/8 inch octigonal barrel. It has been in his family for so long nobody every remembers when it was bought. The odd thing is the butt plate has no serial number. Just the number 1 (one) stamped on the inside of the pistol grip. Could this actually be the first off and what would be a estimated value?
hello, have never had one of these guns but it was interesting to hear about it because of the similarities between it and its cousin that i do have, the model 65 reising 22 cal, amazing how alike they are, mine has the same problems, have to constantly clean it for it to function right, other than that it is a great old accurate rifle, thank you very much
