The pump handle is brass with beautifully engraved big game animals . The butt plate is also brass , engraved with what appears to be the Standard Arms monogram , again , wonderful engraving .
It was said to be a pump and , with a push of a button it will shoot semiauto ??.
On the barrel , close to the receiver , stamps are...

Manf'd by Standard Arms Co.

Futher down the barrel , stamps are...

Maybe a Model G ? Customised most likley. I found this lookin around:

The Standard Model G Automatic Rifle was manufactured by the Standard Arms Company of Wilmington Delaware who were in business circa 1909-1911. The rifle was gas-operated, autoloading and hammerless. This was the first gas-operated rifle manufactured in the United States

Theres also a model M as well but could'nt find anything on it. Heres what Numrich has:

Found this on the web:

Standard Arms started production in Wilmington, DE, in Sept., 1909, and the company folded in 1912. The company was restarted in 1913 as Standard Arms Mfg. Co., and closed in April, 1914.
Nearly 5,000 rifles were manufactured at the actual factory. At the time the plant closed, approx. 2,200 rifles were in various stages of production, and a supply of parts remained. These were primarily purchased by Numrich Arms, made into complete rifles, and sold. Total production (Standard Arms, Standard Arms Mfg. Co. & those assembled by Numrich Arms) reached approx. 7,000 rifles. The highest known serial number is 9012. Within serialization, it is noted that large blocks of numbers were abandoned, and this is thought to be due to changes and improvements made during production. In addition, as the factory folded with a large number of rifles in partial stages of production, it is often not possible to determine which rifles were actually made and completed at the factory, and which were completed outside the factory at a later date.
Many special order options were available, such as checkering, pistol grip, deluxe grades of woods, special sights, etc. Several grades of engraving were available, including Rocky Mountain, Adirondack, Sierra, and Selkirk. Lower priced "etched" models were also available and less frequently encountered than engraved models. A .50 caliber "Camp Carbine" was offered in smooth bore, slide action only. Approx. 25-30 were manufactured and utilized a special cartridge similar to the .50-70 shot cartridge. These are rarely encountered, although they are known to exist in collections.
