    Looks like a Russian 1895 Nagant gas seal. Does the cylinder move forward when the hammer is in the "fired" position?

    The trigger guard and cylinder pin arrangement says Belgium to me.

    I have one very similar to that and it is Belgian. Kind of copies some ideas from the Nagant, Bullldog, and Trantner patents. Look carefully for an ELG and crown proof.

    The original was the Royal Irish Constabulary revolver. The Belgians made tons of copies, usually in caliber .320 European (aka .32 Short Colt)

    A couple of the features include an unusual ejector- pull the rod out of the cylinder pin, swing it to the side, then push the rod back to push out fired cases. The "scalloped" cylinder- scallop closed at both ends- is typical Belgian.

    Take a REAL close look, use a magnifier, bet you will find an ELG in an oval mark- proofmark from Liege Belgium. I have one of these in the back of the safe.

    Looks like a Veranessaneckakokokoff Model 3 Type VI Mark 2 1/2 style C Version 4 with the modified #12 Morse taper on the ejector rod.

    Well actually, I heard something like that at a flea market, once, from a guy who was also selling clothespins and used meat grinders.[:D][:D][:D]
