It should be a .30-40 caliber. If the bore is considerably smaller than that it may be some kind of a drill rifle. A cerrosafe casting of the chamber should comfirm the caliber. A good strong light could give you an idea if the small bore is full length or just at the muzzle.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
