By 1895 when the Moran bothers sold the business to Charles E. Coggshall.

The Moran Brothers Saddlery produced Saddles, Tack, Chaps, Gun Leather and a host of other items needed by the working Cowboys of the late 1800s and this solidified the Moran Brothers place in history with Montana being of prime Cowboy Country in that time.
