Percussion/cartridge conversions

658 1
Question for you wheel gun experts, just to solve a curiosity. On the old cartridge conversions, I believe they were Richards, and Thuer or something like that, on the percussion revolvers, how did they do the firing pin. Did they replace the hammer with one that had a firing pin on it, or add a firing pin that way, or was it some how frame or cylinder mounted?
I guess I could just go watch The Good The Bad and The Ugly and try to pause it when Clint or Eli has one of their .36 cartridge conversions cocked. But I figured I'd defer on the experts, instead of the film industry. Thanks
