The stock may have been but I don't think so, the rear of where the lock is inlet is too pointed. There's no British proofs on the barrel and the crown and double border on the lock plate are very crudely hand engraved but they do seem to have been copied from an Enfield.

It looks like it was home made. I'm thinking that all its good for is a wall hanger. I would be afraid to shoot the thing.
