The octagon section of the barrel just behind the rear sight points to it being an Argentinian M1879 in .43 Spanish. It should be marked as such on the top flat. THey ordered around 75,000 of these from Remington.

Welcome to TFF.

Over a million Remington rolling block military rifles were made ca. 1867-1888, starting with conversions of Civil War muslets.

In addition to U.S. use, examples were adopted by more than a half-dozen foreign countries, and a chamber cast will often be required to determine the particular cartridge they use.
