Could be, but what specifically tells us this is a tourist gun? I am not knowledgeable enough to know from the photographs presented so far.
I'd say the lack of a ramrod channel is the givaway.
A lot of the "wall hangers" that came or come out of the Middle East may have some original parts, and are cobbled together and sold as an actual, once working, gun.

the weight is because of the large iron barrel, and I didn't see a vent hole? I agree it is a BAZARE GUN for the tourist trade. just look at the frizzen, top jaw and hammer ETC. it is all hokey.
