Default Old Spanish Revolver Identification?

I stumbled across a revolver of some sort while cleaning my grandmother's house. It looks ridiculously old and I'm not a gun person, nor can I find any information about it. Either than it may be a sort of Eibar made replica of a gun. But I haven't a clue really. I attached pictures so any help would be appreciated. I ju

There were tons of these cheap imports sold by mail order. They copied mostly popular American handguns such as S&W and Colt. The one pictured looks like a Colt DA .38 Army with a S&W Triple lock latch. Guns in that condition have no real dollar value. It is something for you to enjoy as it belonged to a family member.

I have a similar pistol, this one made for the Mexican Government long ago, was my Grandfather's and someone gave it to him but it was too worn out to be repaired. We never knew the caliber until I fired one round of 7.62X38r Nagant ammo through it. It was made by Pieper in Belguim. Not for sale.

You have a Swiss Ordinace or Garrison Nagant. These were very common in the late 19th century. I recently sold one that was 98% for $275 dollars. They are interesting handguns and yours would be special to you as it belonged to your grandfather.

It's unfortunate your not interested in guns that would be one to enjoy. (After checked out by a Gunsmith of course). It won't have a whole lot of monetary value.
