This is a Belgian revolver made by Jean-Baptiste Ronge (JBR), but it should be double-action, by the looks of the trigger and guard; maybe the hand is out of place, not allowing it to cycle properly? There should be several Belgian proofmarks elsewhere on the revolver, including on the rear of the cylinder, and if you can see an inspector's mark (usually a letter with a star over it), this may help to date it. Ronge was in business from the early 1800s up to 1929, but this style of revolver looks like it dates from the early 1900s.
