That should make it very easy to clean!

Does that arrangement allow for loading directly into the chamber and then screwing the barrel on?

I don't know about that one, but the originals usually had a powder chamber in the breech which was smaller than the ball. The ball was seated on (not in) the breech, and the barrel screwed on. There was no patch. The advantage was more power as the bullet was groove size (like a modern bullet) since it did not have to be pushed down the barrel first.

yes this one is loaded by unscrewing the barrel, loading the chamber, putting the ball on top of the chamber then screwing the barrel back on

Do you use some sort of wrench to install/remove the barrel?

What he ^ asked.
Can we see a pic of the muzzle ?
I have a small double Bbl that loads that way.

Those are absolutely beautiful little pistols moharrow.

I think screw-barrel pistols are neat but most I've seen are for sale and broken or in horrible condition. Those look awesome!
