Default Yemeni matchlock

I didn't plan to get a Yemeni matchlock this weekend, but for 30 I couldn't pass it, even though it will need a lot of work!

The buttstock padding has been attacked by insects and will go in the freezer for some times. It also seems like the metal parts have been painted black, I don't think it is original but would love your opinion. Also, if the paint isn't original, how would you remove it without damaging the wood?

And by the way, if you have any idea of how old it is, I would love to hear your opinion!

Thanks in advance for your help! 🙂
