    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 3257. scarce Moore's patent brass frame Derringer in .41 rim-fire with arrow engraving. Circa 1860-1865. Engraved on top of the 2.5 inch barrel MOORES PT. FA. CO. BROOKLYN. N.Y. Engraved on both side of the barrel with an arrow, which makes this Derringer rare as these arrows are seldom seen on this type of pistol. Bronze frame with decorative broad scroll engraving. Its most notable feature was the oddly shaped butt, which was made to fit around the middle finger, almost like a ring. Barrel with a knurled button fitted to the side which slides to open and the barrel then twists sideways to load. On February 19th,1861, Daniel Moore of Brooklyn New York obtained a patent for a single shot derringer pistol. He began production of the Moore’s No. 1 Derringer in 1860. By 1863 the company became the Moore’s Patent National Firearms Company. Moore changed the company name again to National Arms Company and in 1870 the company was purchased by Colt. A few minor blemishes otherwise in good well used condition. Action in good working order with a strong spring. Overall length 5 inches. A very scarce original Moores Derringer. Ref 3257. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom.
