i've never owned one, but i looks to me like a Marlin 1881 lever action repeater.This was the  first repeater in 45-70, predating the 1886 winchester by five years.Its i'n one of my books, but i could be wrong.

Definitely not off anything Marlin. All Marlins use a lever that does not contain the trigger mechanism. I'd bet it's off a Mossberg repeating lever action, a close copy of the Marlin 336.
Or possibly the old Stevens 425.

Not a Stevens 425 used to have one and it's almost identical to a Marlin Lever. No trigger attached

Looks like it could be a .22LR Mossberg 400 Palimino lever.

From the schematics I found on the internet, it almost resembles a 1894, 1895 marlin lever except for the enclosed trigger.  They both have that long "thingamajig" in front of the screw hole. 

This thing  must be unique and worth a fortune...... right??  Wink

To the right guy perhaps. Unique does not always mean valuable.

Mossberg 470-472 lever action. They were made in 30-30 and 35 Rem. Later, moodyholler
