Does it have serial number? Has it been ground off? A false one applied? A bit of sulphuric acid and a blow torch'll briefly raise the erased numbers for you if it's a ringer.
No sign of a respray?

I think it's one of the modern repros from Pakistan. You can always tell by the shape of the crown! They'll run up anything for you ...
