Default New to me pinfire revolver

Made by Eugene Lefaucheux, son of Casmire Lefaucheux. My first pinfire. Too pretty to pass up. About 9mm.

I looked at one very similar at a local pawnshop recently. It was 7mm IIRC. At $399 for a gun I would likely never be able to shoot I had to pass.

There is now a company selling ammo and components to reload some pinfire calibers, black powder of course. They use a spring loaded pin and a percussion cap for ignition. I hope to be able to shoot this at least once!
I need to find a gunsmith to work on it. The only issue is the trigger return. Works in double action but trigger goes not reset. Any suggestions on a gunsmith, along with their contact info??
Thanks

Neat old revolver, and looks to be in good shape, if the screws tell the story.

Congratulations on your purchase and I think it looks nice. Even if you don't ever shoot it you have something you wanted and it makes you happy to have it. I don't have any idea what it's worth but since you got something you wanted at a price you were willing to pay I think you done good. Larry
