    I recently aquired what I have identified as a Moore Teat Fire Revolver or National firearms teat fire 32. Heres the deal it was converted long ago to 32 centerfire. Don't know if it was factory or a gunsmith job. Has anyone else found such a conversion? Also looking for some parts long shot but I need a mainspring and a trigger spring. Neat old gun.

    That doesn't seem safe.

    Odds are that gun was set up for black powder. I have a bad feeling that running smokeless loads, even mild 32S&W or 32S&WLong, might be...bigtime suboptimal. The only way I'd fire that thing is with a padded vice and long string.

    There are some 32S&W/Long family loads in black powder being made for the SASS/CAS crowd. You might consider finding some and shooting them AFTER giving the gun a checkout at a minimum (see stickied thread, this forum) and having a gunsmith do so best bet.

    Personally, I think I'd woodcraft a nice case for it and make it a piece of decor versus use it as a shooter.
