Welcome to the forum! That looks like quite the hefty barrel. What are the dimensions of it?
Also a warm welcome from me too.
I have seen a Swiss anti tank rifle close to this one but do not remember where I saw it.
Hope you find your answer.
Edit Come to think of it not Swiss but Swedish if I rember?

I noticed the 3 German eagles on the second picture also. They seem to be pre-ww2 because they are not holding the swastica, so it is possible a wwi... Whatever it is. Sorry, I would help you more but I would think that you are missing the stock and I wouldn't know what to classify it as.
going by that carry bag, it looks like it never had a normal type rifle stock. it looks like it should be mounted to something.
Hey mwallo, can you take pics of the trigger area and a pic of looking down the barrel and width of the barrel. That might help determining whatever it might be, though it seems like it wants to be the internal of a maxim machinegun on steriods.
You know what, try looking at it as an AA gun (a small one). The reason why I say it is because there is no definite trigger, it looks like it would be mounted to a carriage and drop fed ammo (possible, or mag fed). If the bore is bigger that 2cm then it is an AA gun. Picture of the 2cm FlaK 30 This a 1936 2cm AA gun, granted it is completely different but it is a possibility.
Tank gun from 1920's period?
This could be an internal wing-mounted MG for an airplane,just a guess.
