I saw this on a recent TV show of PAWN STARS.  
It's a fully functional blackpowder rifle which loads from the breech. Never saw one before.  You place a round ball in the top hole, them pull a lever on the side which shoves it into the barrel chamber...then you add the powder charge.  Pretty  Cool I thought.  Wonder why it was never mass produced?  scratch 
Not the best quality pictures, but it will give you an idea of what the mechanism looked like.  It sold for $18,000.
