Need Help identifying this revolver

Hi all,

First of all if this tread is posted in the wrong place please change it.

I had this revolver since I was child and I don't know where and when I owned this. I think its something collected by my dad. Lately I wanted to restore it. I know its a hard work but I'm into it. Someone told me that if you restore a gun it will loose its historic value in case it has some.

I did some research and I found a pic of a Montenegrin gun that resembles this one in many aspects also I noticed that the British Bulldog has very similar mechanism. (I attached a picture of the Montenegrin).

Mine has an Ottoman Empire stamp and some Arabic characters (Turks used to Arabic characters before they started using Latin). I couldn't read the characters except one thing that says "Year 27) and an M character on one side of the barrel and an R character the other side the serial number is 55352.

I'll appreciate if someone can identify this revolver also please let me know if its a good idea to restore it.

Thank you Guys
