    They could be almost anything. the one pictured sports a 20 ga shot gun on the bottom center middle left and right have 8 mm and the top center looks to be along the lines of a .22 range center fire possibly a .22 magnum In general a multi bore gun might have 1 or 2 smooth bore and possibly a pair of rifled barrels or it may be called a drilling having only 3 barrels such as a double barrel 12 ga shot gun with a .22 rim fire on top.
    I've never seen one but I have heard of a gun that was a mated pair of 10/22s side by side with a single shot .410 top center. Simply pop in a pair of 100 round mini drums and a .410 slug and be far more deadly than any fully automatic at close range

    That'd be fun to carry around all day (NOT).
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    I believe the top is probably a .22 Hornet, then a pair of 8 x 57's, sitting on top of a 20 ga. shotgun. I used to have a German drillings (3 barrel) two 9.3 x 72r, and a 16 ga. shotgun that was very nice, but not as beautiful as that one. These are works of art, and you don't prop them up against a barb wire fence when you're hunting.

    The top barrel is .22 Hornet and the other two rifle barrels are 8x57, aka 8mm Mauser

    there is a slide on top left of the receiver, that might be used for selection.
