Looks like a movie prop to me...

That, at one time, was a J. Stevens Arms model 520-30 12-gauge shotgun. The barrel has been removed and reversed in the action for some reason (the vertical "vent-rib" section at the left side of the "firearm" actually fitted into the receiver). It has since had what appears to be a .22 barrel and magazine attached underneath said former shotgun, as well as what seems to be a Marlin model 60 or similar rifle action jammed up into the shotgun receiver. Added on to this mess are some sort of three-post sighting system in which the posts don't need to line up, a hand-carved front pistol grip, an eggbeater, and a portion of a grease gun.

The shotgun portion cannot fire at all, and I have serious doubts about whether the .22 portion would function even once. My guess is that it's a movie prop. Pity, as that 520-30 was very likely a WWII relic, either a riot or trench shotgun, serving with the Navy.

Where did you find this?

One gun, or two? Looks like the tormented remains of a tube fed .22 below. Above I don't recognize.

A war zone amateur made gun?

I think you found a "steam punk"
.22 that was lost at Thunder Dome.

Are you sure that is a weapon and not an industrial caulk applicator?

Agree with Anonymous, It does look like a 'movie prop' to me as well.

Could also be something from the set of Buck Rogers serial too...

My vote is a 1920's era caulking gun or assembly line rivet insertion tool. Something that ugly could not possibly be a firearm...at least not a functional one. Does it have a matchlock or wheel-lock on the other side hidden from the camera?

Why do I get the feeling I've seen this thing before? Is it a prop from one of the Star Wars films?

Colt 1911 Combat Comander .45ACP purchased new in 1982 95% condition
excellent bore. This gun has been put away for years. Shows almost no wear.

A coin-car-wash pressure washer masquerading as a shotgun?

Someone is WAY to into steampunk.

Top portion is a shotgun, Browning designed. I think Thane nailed it as being a J Stevens 520. There appears to be no discernable way to load the shotgun.

Bottom portion is a tube fed .22. I'm going to go with a Savage, since it doesn't quite look like the rear of the receiver is right for a Marlin.

I saw a fellow on the Firearm blog who was doing things like this with pieces of confiscated firearms he got that had to be destroyed after seizure. He had a particularly cool triple double barrel shotgun pistol that looked very steampunk, and the sort of thing a character in a William Gibson novella might use...

If not for a movie, Steampunk cosplayer build would be my bet.

bottom section is either a marlin model 60 or a glenfield 60. unsure about the rest. this has 'prop' written all over it.

Alright Xavier. Now your just makin' them up. I think you might just have a corner of your garage dedicated to making things like this.

You should go into business. Xugly Guns and Photography sounds like a good business name.
