The Hood Firearms Company of Norwich CT was active from 1875 - 1879. It used the patents of Freeman W. Hood, Worcester and Boston Mass. and Norwich CT. Hood was a designer of a variety of firearms and related components.

Colonel Charles A. Converse was also a founder of the Hopkins & Allen Manufacturing Company, which made derringers, the ubiquitous handguns that legend says were frequently used, after words failed, to settle a card game.
