Default Any Idea what this is besides a pipe bomb?

This was supposed to have been found in a cave in France. I'd like to know what it is. Some online research lead me to a Fusil.

Some sort of Flintlock or caplock rifle. The cavity on the side looks alot like the cavity on old black powder rifles when you remove the locking mechanism.

Matchlock maybe? Doesn't look like enough room in there for a typical flintlock.
