What is this antique, octagon barrel, .22 rifle?

This rifle has no markings that I can make out, barrel is rusted, you can see the rough condition in the pictures. I am assuming it is some sort of .22, not sure if it is .22 long, short. Anything you can tell me about it would be helpful, make, value, etc.
That is a Warnant Flobert rifle. As Trap said, they were basically a BB gun on steroids, made to fire the BB cap cartridge. The action is NOT strong enough for real .22 ammo, and will disassemble itself for you if you try those.
But they would cheerfully sell you a Flobert, $1.60-$2.80 while a Stevens Crack Shot was $2.95 and Favorite or Remington No 4 was a whopping $5.00.
