Found these a while back.

{alt}

First time I found a pin fire cartridge that still had
tha pin in it.

If ya want to know a little about pin fire guns, read
on.

Here is a whole pin fire cartridge. You can see that
the pin is inserted into the casing.

{alt}

So, how does it work.

Simple.

You can see tha pin being inserted.

{alt}

Here is inside tha casing before tha percussion cap
is in place.

{alt}

Here is inside tha casing after tha percussion cap is
in place.

{alt}

A picture?s worth a thousand words, idin it?

The gun simply hits down on tha pin and tha percussion
cap ignites tha powder.

Here?s an example of a pin fire revolver.

Thanks fer lOOkin,

Tabdog

?1509: Wheel lock guns - wicks were replaced the wheel lock that generated a spark for igniting the gunpowder.
?1630: Flintlock guns - the flintlock did two things mechanically, it opened the lid of the flash pan and provided an igniting spark.
?1825: Percussion-cap guns invented by Reverend John Forsyth - firing mechanism no longer uses flash pan, a tube lead straight into the gun barrel, the tupe had an exposive cap on it that exploded when struck
?1830: Back action lock
?1835: Colt revolver - first mass-produced, multi-shot, revolving firearms
?1840: Pin-fire cartridges
?1850: Shotguns
?1859: Full rim-fire cartridge
?1860: Spencer repeating carbine patented
?1861: Breech loaded guns
?1862: Gatling Gun
?1869: Center-fire cartridge
