Here i have a rifle (or whats left of it). Seems quite old,has a thick black patina over it. It shares some visual similarities with the enfield but it doesn't seem to be one. I'm mostly interested in it as a wallhanger for its relic/antique condition.
Do you think its genuine or could be one of those japanese replicas from the bicentennial?
What is bugging me is how heavily modified it seems (East indian company rifle fallen to pirates?If that even make sense)
Any help or ideas are appreciated

Looks like you have an indigenous copy of a British weapon of the Pattern 1853 family of arms. I can't tell you exactly which model arm this one is supposed to be due to the artistic license that the manufacturer took, but you could call it a P1853 rifle musket/P1856 rifle hybrid mashup. Generally folks call these Khybeer Pass guns, from the region in Afghanistan/Pakistan where many have been made over the past hundred or so years.

Cheers,
Garrett
