Remington  Split Breech single shot civil war carbine . Flayderman P 178/179, item 5E 079.  Cal 50 Rimfire. 

this is the rare Type II, having only 4 screws visible on right side of frame( type I has 7).

Most were resold by the US army to remington who sold them for the Franco Prussian War, to france. 
This one has the  US military  proofmark on the stock, , buttplate is Us marked, bore is completely mint, seems unfired. otherwise dark grey patina, stock has no splitds or cracks. . Only the normal amount of dings and the letters LS and the number 10 beneath it, left side.  Works perfect.
