ID musket

Hi everyone,

Does anybody have an idea which rifle (type musket/rifled musket) this could be?

There are no signs, engravings, or signs of wear or anything alike, probably a reproduction. But it holds a flint, that's what caught me.

If it's rifled it could be a reproduction of a Baker musket, seems to have similar proportions and rod mount.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.

Are there any markings at all? On the barrel or on the bottom of the barrel?

It looks modern and not really a reproduction of anything, just a flintlock muzzle loader.

It looks like one of those cheap Japanese ones imported in the 70's.
