It's a big gun, but never a punt gun : full size butt, stocked all the way to the muzzle, no obvious recoil device, etc. Too ornate and classy to be a bank made by a local smith.

More likely a wall gun from somewhere well east of here. The wood looks as though it has little use, notably on the rest area or notch in the fore end.
