lets look at it from this perspective.
if it was from 1812 the chances of it being a cartridge gun of any type are slim to about 1%.
now if it was from closer to the time it was found [more likely judging from the condition] it could be a flair gun, or a single shot shot shell handgun.
or the big tube could be a cut down magazine, something is missing from the barrel portion.
or it was a home made lower handle for a tater digger.
