    Looks to me like Tabatiere action (French or Belgian) with the lock behind hammer and the screw bushing on wrist and hammer screw. Probably “Zulu” shotgun if barrel cut too.

    Lostinidaho - here is a link to some photos of Snider Rifles

    As the photos show - the British Snider/Enfield rifles utilized a front action lock

    The phot of your lock is of a "back action" lock.As already pointed out, your lock is probably of Belgium manufacture - check it to see if there are any proof marks on it anywhere or markings.

    What is the bore size of the barrel? Rifled or smoothbore?

    As already pointed out . . this is probably from what was commonly known as a Zulu shot gun - my Dad had one as a kid 100 years ago (no joke).
