Moore’s Patent National Arms Co. No. 2 Deringer

$2,450
A very nice National Arms Co. Moore’s Patent number 2 Deringer, numbered 8598 that was made with a knife blade extractor.
The design for a Deringer using a .41 caliber rimfire short cartridge was patented by Daniel Moore, Brooklyn New York in 1861. By 1863 Moore’s company was taken over by the National Firearms Company and by 1870 they, in turn, were taken over by Colt.
The top of the 2 ½ inch barrel is marked ‘NATIONAL ARMS Co BROOKLYN. N.Y.’ with the serial number ‘8598’ appearing under the barrel. The pistol measure 5 ½ inches overall.
The engraving to the barrel, frame and back strap is very clear, the frame has an even patina and the barrel retains almost all of its fading blue.
The action works as it should with only a slight wiggle in the barrel.
The checked walnut birds head grip is also in a very good condition.
All in all, a very good number 2 Deringer not often seen in Australia.
Sold as a collector item only.
Please note that while this pistol uses an obsolete cartridge regulations and licensing vary from state to state, check with your appropriate authority.
