It's some kind of Arabic or Indian firearm. Possibly a miquelet action. Predecessor of the flintlock. The Arabs used miquelet muzzle loaders well into the 20th Century.
I suspect it's missing some parts and has had some bits added too.
There are some good pictures of the action here. Your's isn't worth the same kind of money though.
