I'm by no means an expert but I'm a good guesser, the top is one is a muzzleloader my girlfriends dad works on roads, bridges...etc. He's found a few barrels like that before, he does a lot of digging. I'm guessing here but the bottom one looks to me like a remington rolling block receiver, looks like some of the parts have broken off of the receiver.

But like I said I'm guessing...

A bit of break free and a few patches should clean her on up , just be sure to have it checked out by a competent gunsmith before firing it .
