Default Help! What Gun is this?!?!

Recently I found this gun in an old village house.
The gun was originally found by my grandfather, in Serbia in 1930s.
Do anyone knows what gun is this?

Are there any legible proof marks, writing, etc? What I find interesting is that the grip looks nearly the same as a "broomhandle" Mauser pistol. I don't recall seeing another handgun from the early part of the 20th that the grip was shaped quite the same as the Mauser. I'm wondering if this could be another Mauser of some sort.

The gun doesn't have any marks or writings . It has only number "17657" written on its barrel. The gun may be older then You suggested.... It was found in 1930s but it could be much older. Not sure if that is true.
I can upload some more photos if that can help?

Looks kind of like a Dryse.

Looks similar to a Nagant Model 1895 revolver.
Sorry I'm not up to speed on the European guns.

On the rear of the cylinder, there are usually 2 lettters- LG or JG (Leo Gasser, or son, Johan) a 2 digit number, and then the serial number. The 2 digit number is the year it was made.

IIRC, they had a funky sort of safety that a double action triger pull released. Cavalryman's pistol- note the resemblance of the grip to a saber?
