Found gun parts

At my work I found these old gun parts. There is a trigger and trigger guard, firing mechanism, and a couple other parts that don't know. I am wondering if anyone can help me find out what type of gun these went to. On the bottom of the firing mechanism thing it says "2*LE".

Pieces of a Martini single shot, likely a British Martini Henry.

Martini-Francotte of some kind, the block/trigger mech comes out as a packaged unit.

It's not a Francotte. The Francotte trigger guard is/was notably different.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
