MOORE PATENT 7 SHOT .32 CAL REVOLVER WITH LEATHER HOLSTER
Original Civil War D. Moore Patent 7 Shot Revolver with an original Leather Holster. The gun has an overall pleasing patina with beautiful brass frame and nice engraving. The 6"barrel is marked D. Moore Patent Sept 18, 1860 and has its front bead sight intact (Moore would eventually lose a lawsuit with Smith & Wesson and had to add "Manfd’ for Smith & Wesson By Moore’s Patent Firearms Co." on later guns). The ramrod and catch are MIA as often seen with these weapons. Has a serial number of 5595. The walnut grips are in good shape with obvious wear from service and one small toe missing from the left grip. Has traces of original finish on the trigger guard. The hammer clicks in cocked position and releases with the trigger but the cylinder does not rotate. The frame is loose and has some wiggle in it. Both easy fixes if so desired. Has a modern screw that attaches the backstrap to the trigger guard and missing a part to the right of the hammer. The leather holster is in good shape and fits the gun perfect. Has a single belt loop on the reverse and complete with closure tab and finial. a great displaying rig that won't break the bank.
