Very nice. I assume it is yours? I would think Sindi in origin, and used as a "wall gun".

Looks good at a distance!

But clearly all of the brass work & wood work is brand new....

Look at all those fresh cut sharp fresh cut brass & timber edges, unlike the worn old barrel & lock...

Was it sold as original? or antique? Hope it was very cheap?

The stock inlay shows the flag of Pakistan! Ottoman I think not.....As its only just been made.
