Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 10102

Question:

I have an old double barrel cap lock 12 ga. shotgun, it has WM Moore & Co. on each side and "London Fine Twist" on top between the barrels. I need to find out some info about the gun and weather it has coil steel barrels or not, also what kind of loads it is able to handel. My Moms cousin an older gentleman gave it to me and claims a friend of his borrowed it a long time ago and killed a deer with it, this gun is not a replica. I would appreciate any info. Thanks & God Bless!!! Joe

Answer:

William Moore & Co. ws an English gunmaking business that succeeded William Moore & William Grey in 1854, operating from 43 Old Bond Street in London. The trading style became William Moore and Grey in 1873. The gun would have been made to shoot black powder shells.
