Default Can you help ID this antique rifle?

Can anyone tell what year this rifle is from? Is it a reproduction? It has an octagon barrel, no names or markings on it.

Tried blowing up your pics, not enuff pixels to go around- very grainy. MAY be a matchlock. cannot offer opinion on real thing, or tourist repro. Sorry, Higher definition photos would not hurt, may help.
