    It looks like what was left of a Trapdoor model, and some other stock maybe, the pics aren't the best. It almost looks like a screw through the wrist, right behind breech, that would be correct. The trigger and guard don't look right. The block on the trap looks like it's had metal taken off somewhere along the line, but that would have prevented it locking up to fire, and the channel that the firing pin rested in is missing, this was part of the block itself.

    Here's some sites with complete rifles

    It really has had a hard life, besides the rust.
