OK, Michael, I found out what the pistol you gave me is!

So, it is over 110 years old and I have found someone who may have ammunition for it!

The ammunition is the first cartridge ammunition tried! A pin sticks out of the bottom and is struck by the hammer! The primer then burns and lights the gunpowder.
