    That is far too short for a proper rifle. Which makes one fear a cut-down. BUT it is about right for a Model 1869 Cadet rifle - which is actually rarer!
    Please post good photos of the entire rifle, with detail photos of the action and any markings. The lack of a serial number is disturbing. And make a careful measurement of the barrel length!

    50 carbine or 50-70 chamber ?

    Some 50 cal Cadet rifles were chambered for the 50 Carbine which has a cartridge case of 1.75 inches while other rifle were chambered for the 50-70. If the 50-70 cartridge is too long you should have a cadet rifle. The 50 carbine was also used in Remingtons and Sharps carbines.

    I posted a photo of a few old US 50 cal cartridges
