Inherited Piece...no clue

So it's been sitting collecting dust but I really wanna get this piece up and running again. From the data on the gun itself it is an Armsport Inc. Model 5018 blackpowder pistol.

It doesn't say but appears to be a 44 cal, but again brand new to the blackpowder pistol scene.

Anything I need to know about these things?

I am taking it in to a gunsmith as soon as I find one with knowledge on BP pistols to have it cleaned and checked over. It doesn't cock without putting the trigger forward and the cylinder can just spin freely so I know it has some issues.

Say I get all that fixed, is this a model that can have a conversion cylinder put in to shoot low pressured cowboy loads with modern cartridges instead of manual loads?

Crappy cell phone pics but best I can do at the moment:
