Where can you get parts for the Howard Arms .32 cal revolver and is Howard Arms still in business?

HOWARD ARMS CO. Tradename on shotguns used by Fred Bifflar & Company of Chicago, Illinois, made by Crescent Fire Arms Company. I would expect that the same hardware store would have used the same tradename on handguns which were probably made by the same company. Unfortunately, both are long out of business but Crescent was purchased by Stevens which was purchased by Savage Arms, so someone at may be able to tell you something. A little additional research found an answer on Ron Gabel's site that says Meriden Arms made the Howard Arms revolvers. The only dates I can find for Fred Bifflar are 1870-1890, but it may have started earlier and must have ended later. Crescent was established in 1892 and Meriden Arms didn't exist until 1905 and I find several references connecting these two companies with Bifflar retail business.
