[Mexican War] converted flint lock pistols

I have several converted flint lock pistols from the years 1837 to 1840 by Asa Waters and R Johnson. My question is
when these guns are converted from flint to percussion do they replace the barrel, mine all appear to be replaced, or do they just drill a new nipple hole on top of the barrel. I know there are several ways to do the conversion. All of mine have the hammer hitting the nipple on top of the barrel.

Thank You for your help, A.S. Herje Raleigh NC
