Definitely Belgian manufacture, full set of proof marks.
It's a version of the Nagant revolver made for Russia, but the nine shot cylinder is unusual. It's also missing the loading slider and the trigger guard.
This website mentions Spanish copies with 9 shot cylinders and faked Belgian marks, so you might have an example of 19th century counterfeiting.

Unless by chance parts for the Russian Nagant will fit, I would say there is no hope of obtaining parts for that gun. I am afraid that it, like many thousands of old guns, will never be anything more than a wall hanger.

There is NO way that is a Belgian produced Nagant. Those proofs and the overall construction are extremely crude. It looks like one of the poorly made Spanish copies or possibly even a copy of Khyber Pass origin. Any real Nagant revolver parts most likely not fit and I would not even consider firing this revolver.

Zhuk shows probably a dozen different variants of the Nagant revolver, but none just like this one. Restoration would involve some scrap iron, files, and a lot of time.

I miss only two parts in revolver-pavl and trigger guard.And I must to made new cilinder because someone tried to made it to shoot 7,62x25 cartridges... Stupid enaugh!!!
THANKS TO ALL!!!

I, too, vote for a Spanish copy of a Belgian revolver, but not one of the "official" copies. I wouldn't put a penny into it, unless you plan on hanging it on a wall. Based on other Spanish copies of the era that I've seen, it's an accident waiting to happen.
