Yeah, you can get conversion cylinders for the price of a new gun. A pinfire has a pin sticking out from the side of the cartridge. It's actually a friction primer. It fits in a notch cut into the cylinder and when the hammer falls it drives it into the cartridge creating sparks as it goes. Sorta like a friction primer for a cannon in reverse.
