Mark-

  I don't believe so. Bamanut's pistol shown in the picture above seems to have undergone a similar type of conversion method to the A. Waters model seen here:

Waters Single Shot Percussion Pistols  (the bottom one of the three pictured here shows the: "French" type conversion, while I think that Bamanut's pictured above has the: "Belgium" type conversion). The pictures and explanations are quite good.

  And here is the Belgium conversion:

  There doesn't seem to be any connection to the Maynard system typically seen on muskets such as the Springfield Model 1855.
