    I do know these types of pistols were very popular in South America in .320 caliber.

    I saw one, once, that was chambered for "44 shot". Actually 44/40 shot cartridge, the precursor to the 410. A 410 fit, so they fired it. Both barrels at once, I believe. Then he went to the ER to have his hand fixed.

    At one time Spain had a large cottage industry of gun makers. The Spanish gun trade was able to produce almost anything. The quality was usualy ok but not grate. Some guns were of extremely high quality. Your pistola most likely dates from around 1880 to 1914. They chambered pistols like this for a wide range of cartriges. .32 Short Cort, 8mm French revolver, 7.62Russian, .32 acp, .38 S&W, .44 Nagant, you name it the Spanish gun trade would make a gun to shoot it.
