build 1800's style 22 pistol

I was watching a show on tv about 1800's single shot pistols and it really got my interest,enough that I decided to build a pistol as my winter project.Can anyone help me find info (prints,sketches etc) about trigger to hammer mechnisms,or anything about building a pistol.I am a retired toolmaker not a gunsmith.I hope I got the photo of the pistol I am going to build ,I am new to PISTOLSMITH.

Re: build 1800's style 22 pistol

In all the years that PISTOLSMITH has been on the www this is the first request for info on buildin' single shot pistols I can remember seein' so.......

Look thru Numrich Gun Parts catalog and their web site, lots of drawings there.....Brownells has books on buildin' single shot rifles, may have been written by De Hass, I don't have the catalog handy......Internet has everything else, probably there are sites on single shot pistols

Google single shot pistols.....Lots of sites come up
