Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice Civil War vintage U.S. Moore's Patent Firearms Co. No.1 Derringer in .41 rimfire caliber. These were made in Brooklyn, New York, as marked on the top of the single shot barrel:

MOORE'S PATENT F.A. Co. BROOKLYN, N.Y.

On the barrels underside is:- PAT.FEB.24 1863 along with serial number 2306. There is also assembly marking 67P on the barrel just beneath the chamber. The pistol is single shot, and is loaded by pulling back on the round button on the right side of the frame, which unlocks the 2 1/2 inch rotating steel barrel. Ejection of the spent cartridge was done by hand, usually at home, as these were not really designed for quick reloading.

The pistols frame is engraved brass, which was originally Nickel plated, most of which is worn away. The company was taken over by COLT after the Civil war was over and then marketed this same pistol as the COLT No.1 DERRINGER.

In lovely condition, cleaned and Ready to display.
