It appears to be a tricked out Smith & Wesson top-break, single action.

But it also look like it has Colt single action grips.

It's a clamshell/facade prop gun built over/around a Taurus revolver. The sideplate had to be taken off to reload the blanks in the cylinder.

Taurus 85, according to the prop forums.

Yep. I believe that there were two prop guns: The one pictured for close-ups and a less detailed one with a more durable body for stunt work.

According to the IMFDB article about Firefly:

The signature pistol of Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) in the series is a Taurus Model 85 revolver completely covered by a brass casting to make it resemble a semi-auto handgun. The look of the weapon was based on the Volcanic repeaters used in the Civil War as explained by Firefly creator Joss Whedon in the visual companion book of the series. In the Firefly universe, the gun is a "Moses Brothers Self-Defense Engine Frontier Model B". The same prop gun was used for the feature Serenity, but given to a new prop house who made the magazine straight on the bottom, and bulked up the right side plate and added a spring loaded rear sight. It was then held by Fillion in his current series Castle.
