    First off this is my first post so thank you for letting me in. Seems like there is a wealth of knowledge in here. If I'm posting in the wrong section I apologize. I recently purchased a Moore Patent revolver and would like to see if I can find any information on it. I already know the history of the company itself but would like to get more detailed to the pistol. I know with Colt you can get a factory letter, some thing along those lines. Any ideas on where to start or would it be a dog chasing its tail? I've done multiple google searches with no results. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum jveesart.

    The D. Moore Company became National Firearms in 1865. Colt purchased National Firearms in 1870. Contact Colt and see if they have the D. Moore Company records.
