Default 1885 revolvers! tell me whats up i gotem!

[IMG][/IMG]

I guess im in the right place now.
as you see i have two old revolvers.
A little worn on the nickle plating, some carbon, can be fixed and takin off.
"Hopkins and Allen MFG CO. Norwich Conn. USA PAT Jan 5 Oct 6 .86' "
thats on the barrel of the bigger gun, the breaktop.
The small one is a victor .32 S&WGTGE, same condition, the trigger is alittle hard to pull. So im sure these are from that era of 1885-86
what you guys think? how much can i get for them? How much to fix them up to shoot them?

the hammer on this baby is also custom from that era..it pulls back so you can get your thumb on hammer to load it.
THANKS!

I THINK your revolvers were made for 32 S&W BLACK POWDER loads, and really should not be shot with current smokeless loads. You might check on auctionarms.com and gunbroker.com, search CLOSED AUCTIONS LAST 90 DAYS- see if any have been there. There ARE folks that collect H&As, they do not demand the $$$$ that Colts or S&Ws do.

The Victor is an H&R. Being realistic both of them together might bring 300 bucks.
