It looks like a Spanish Model 1916 Short Rifle. There should be (or have been) markings on the receiver ring (the round metal part behind the rear sight). If it is Spanish, the caliber would have originally been 7x57 Mauser, or 7mm Mauser, as it is called in the U.S.

That gun looks like it has been badly treated, so I strongly suggest having it checked out by a gunsmith before firing it.
