The Alienist- Silver Smile
This is a gun from the third episode of The Alienist.
Sorry about the quality of the pic. Anybody have
any info on it?

I am going to try and repost this. I don't know why the pic is so big
If you want to view it correctly you have zoom it down to 25 percent
of the size you see at that link.

very similiar looking guns by Lefaucheux. It is apparently
a pinfire revolver which I need to read up on. Don't know
what that is. It also has over-under barrels. Here are a couple

Oh, thanks Evil Tim. Funny that you
found one of the same links that I found.

Pinfire is where the firing pin is part of the case rather than part of the gun, it sticks out of one side and hits a primer on the other side. It was used before the development of reliable rimfire or centrefire cartridges.

Pinfire revolvers are pretty easy to spot because they have a distinctive hammer that arches over the top of the cylinder to press down on the exposed firing pins and there are small holes in the cylinder rather than recesses with nipples for percussion caps, like so:
