I'm trying guys.

I found this description:
"This c. 1780 flintlock pistol has three barrels numbered 1-3 that can be fired individually by rotating the pan using the switch on the left. A sliding safety arrests the cock and frizzen."

Okay, so the button and ring piece is turned to expose the priming pan for each barrel?

Were these pistols prone to malfunction and fire all the barrels at once?
