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.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.

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.

Thanks to all!!!

Thanks to all af Your for the help!I think I found what it is.This photo is from site
Citate:Three line 9-shot Nagant revolver. Very good copy. Excellent quality finish. Accurate and powerfull. Cartridges loaded with smokeless powder and nickel-jacketed bullet in 7.62 mm caliber. Cartridge shown in actual size. Hard workmanship. The length of revolver with the handle 6 vershkov. Weight 2 and 1/8 pounds. Price 18 roubles

And i think it's what I have.In the ZHUK's book I think this is it:
And the book says that it's the fake Nagant from Piper.
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!!!

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.
