Was it a 1898-1912 Rast & Gasser service revolver, or ?????
IIRC, the presence of a trigger guard indicates commercial, or (in the case of military issue) an officer's gun.
The originals were WWI service revolvers, first in Austria-Hungary, then used in Italy & Yugoslavia.
The Ivory (?) grips, engraving, and nickel plating (?) seem to indicate either a presentation/special order revolver, or possibly a very well done period custom, since it appears much too well done to be an amateur upgrade.
I'd certainly want to investigate the internals further, for:
1) Proofmarks - originals were 8mm Gasser, Belgian copies were 7.62 Nagant.
2) Grip inside(s) for possible presentation or maker ID.
Is the seller offering any sort of provenance on it ?
