Hi, gilj,

I know nearly nothing about early Japanese firearms, but yours is much too nice to have been made in the matchlock period even though it lasted longer in Japan than elsewhere. I think it is a modern reproduction; I do know those have been sold in Japan to collectors who cannot afford the originals.
