    I have no idea who made this or how it works. Other than the obvious having a missing hammer it seems well cared for. Bore is bright and shiny.
    Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go.

    Got any more pictures. At first I thought it might be a Remington - Keene but the bolt handle is in the wrong place.

    I'm guessing that it predates the use of paper patch bullets in the strictest sense. It probably used a paper or linen cartridge and the bullet was possibly encased in the cartridge. Ignition was external via percussion cap. Is it your's? if so have you removed the barreled action from the stock and looked for any marks under the wood? If completely unmarked it may be a prototype. Many such rifles were designed in the 1840's through the 1860's but never put into production.

    It is a German Podewils-Lindner.
    Uses a paper cartridge.

    I thought it was a Calisher & Terry Carbine - a capping breachloader that used a paper cartridge, but I can't see the markings well enough to tell.

    That is SO cool! I'd replace those mis matched hardware store screws and get a hammer for it and make it fit then off to the range!

    It looks like a 1917 Enfield Rifle. Not sure though. But rightly said, it's still bright and shiny.
