Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 389

Question:

I have seen lots of references to Wm Moore shotguns in modern configuration ( centerfire ) however I have a double Barrel 12Gauge Percussion marked Wm Moore & co ont The left side plate and " LONDON FINE TWIST " on the rib separating the Barrels.Please furnish whatever info you have if you need more I can digitize a photo of the proof marks ect. tks

Answer:

The original Wm. Moore and Company produced good grade English shotguns in side action. The name Wm. Moore and Company was later used on Belgium made bar-locks sold by the H. & D. Folsom Arms Company of NYC. Your shotgun, I suspect, is an early (late 19th century) model produced by the well known English Moore.
