That is a 'Mule Ear' lock. Googling mule ear Remington got me a Jenks but it doesn't look the same. http://armscollectors.com/mgs/jenks_breechloading_rifle.htm

During the 19th century Remington made barrels for the trade, and many small gunsmiths bought them. I suspect that this rifle was most likely built somewhere in the northeast or midwest by an individual gunsmith using a purchased lock and a Remington barrel. It was probably made during the 1840's through the 1860's.
