    Measure the muzzle to determine caliber then . . .

    A trip to Antiques Road Show would be in order.

    I want to say it is a Remington Rolling Block in probably a 43 caliber!

    Look at the gun in the middle of the web page, looks very similar.

    This is a Civil War Martially Marked Remington Type I Split Breech Carbine - labeled on the website!

    It's a beauty. Looks like a frontier era AR-1. No magazine, should make the cut in the new gun laws. If it's un-registered, all the better.

    Merry Christmas, sorry I couldn't be more help.

    It's definitely a Remington rolling block, most likely in 45 or 50 cal: Looks like a soldiers rifle (carbine);
