    It sounds like you have a "pepperbox" pistol. I can't help you any more than that. But go on a gun forum like the one at www.gunsandammomag.com. They are good people and some are very knowledgable. Good luck and good shooting!

    "The only safe place to be when dealing with a pepperbox is right in front of it!"
