The elephant gun is simply a large caliber rifle that was designed to bring down large game. In a fantasy setting it may be named after a more exotic creature (Drake gun, Giant Killer, etc). It might also be the preferred firearm of a larger race such as a bugbear or ogre. The elephant gun does more damage than a comparable rifle but is a breechloader with a smaller capacity.
The pistol-sized version of an elephant gun is commonly known as a “howdah pistol” because it was originally used by riders in a howdah (the covered saddle of an elephant).
