There is a whole series of these simple blackpowder pistols.
I think there is a twisty double barrel/single hammer, there is a pepperbox and a 'duck foot' pistol. They used to show up all the time at gunshows and catalogs, but I can't recall seeing them available online much.

Most of them were .36 caliber smoothbore. I would guess a .35 caliber ball and a patch and a pinch of black powder would make it go pop.

Whaddaya know, Dixie still has them showing as "Snake Eyes"
and the duckfoot:

Maybe you might get a few more answers if you were to post your query in the proper section.

You know, that actual C&R & Blackpowder forum, not in the gallery (picture) forum.
