    Some parts of that musket, like the finger grooves, look French, although as Jack says, the Austrians used them as well.

    Just an idea, but I wonder if it is one the many tons of anonymous muskets turned out in Liege in an era before the proof laws were enforced. As such it might well have some features common to French muskets.
