there are NO markings anywhere on this gun
Unknown. It may be a pre 1899 black powder cartridge. If that is the case it was well taken care of the bore is clean and sharp.
Have you looked under the fore grip for markings?
I took it all apart and went over it all with a magnifying glass and then an electronic microscope and found nothing. The bore mic.s at .280+/- so it could be European 7mm?
Maybe a .280 Ackley round?
No markings? Must be an evil ghost gun!
Looks vaguely like a Triplett & Scott rotating breech rifle. But it isn't...though it appears to work in a similar fashion.

Could be home made.
Yes it's definitely not a Triplett and Scott but what cool guns those were. It certainly could be a "home made" or more likely a locally made firearm. I do enjoy finding odd unmarked guns and then searching for books and info about them.
that rotating breech threw me off, thought the sights were meant to be shot 1876 gangster style.
