While difficult to tell from your pictures, I am going to error on the side of saying that is a cast children's toy just based on the definition around the cylinder and the lack of any seperation between it and the frame.

Possibly an old Roy Roger's style cap pistol that used to shoot those old, red, rolled up caps. Damn those were fun to play with back in the day.

nail on the head...the hammer rests too far up on the rame and lies on a round drum (shouldnt be there) where the caps would be held.

Good eyes JD. At first glance it didn't look real to me either. Maybe a Fanner 50?

Cool find. Is it a metal detector find?

It's not a Fanner 50 and the drum didn't hold caps. The left side of the cylinder swung up and the caps were placed on a stud and threaded up to the hammer.

Haha..........yes. My older brother and I used to do that.

We got bored with the cap gun because it had a lot of misfires.

Oh yes. Many times. We also would take rocks, wrap the caps around them with some Elmer's glue, and we had reuseable grenades during our Cops and Robbers gun fights.

Why would cops have grenades, because we were hardcore... LOL
