Also, we see a different coloured metal around the touchhole, which to me says welding.

There is no other way to account for this, plus the cock, pan, and (frizzen)having no rust/pitting, Plus the frizzen having absolutely No wear, than that this pistols re-converted.

I am not trying to find fault, but this is as it is.
I would advise putting this pistol up on another antique arms forum, and see what they say.

Kindest regards,
Richard.

May be this pictures could help you .. I don't see any trace of welding
