Definitely some sort of home made firearm. In order to find out what they are or what they are for you would probably have to travel back in time to talk to the person that built them.

MAYBE they were submitted to some government body way back in the day to see if they would be interested in the.

Who knows.

I would focus on what seems to be two proof marks on one of them. If you can identify that proof mark, you will be a lot closer to ID'ing the pistols. I almost want to say early (1860 - 1910 era) Japan or Manchuria or Siam (now called Thailand of course), but don't know enough about those countries proofs back then to have a certainty. Have you cerro cast the barrels yet to identify the caliber?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

On the other hand one of the proof marks looks crudely done. That implies India, Pakistan or Afghanistan in some family shop that carved in a sort of proof mark to boost sales. If so, that knocks the value down to about the going rate of scrap metal.
