I don't know, but here is something else. If you have to ask others whether you need to buy it, you don't.

My gut feeling it will be exactly a wall hanger, especially in a wooly mammoth caliber.

But-but it's a gun! There are lots of things I may need and don't even know it

Gahendra Variant.
In good condition they can be shooters if one is willing to do their due diligence & homework. Reloading obsolete black powder cartridges is a hobby unto itself.
Outside forum links are verboten here. However, suffice it to say that there is a range report with one of these on a cast bullet specific forum only a Google search away.
As to whether it's worth buying, only you can be the judge.
Personally, if it's not something you can actually fire safely with period spec ammo, I wouldn't bother, the world is full of wall hangers. Opinions vary of course.
