I just looked at it,and with my limited knowledge of Soddys in particular, I wont say.
It Is a very interesting old iron and the architecture is very distinctive,kinda attractive in a way to me personally.
Thanks for mentioning this.
I'm not interested but someone might be.

Nothing about this gun looks Soddy to me. Thanks for drawing it to my attention just the same!  :)

I think the word is "shoddy" petunia.

The fitting for a false muzzle indicates it was a target rifle. Probably for schuetzen.  Brass fittings, so doesn't look TN to me.
What other regions had the distinctive butt shape with a ridge from the pistol grip to the butt?

  Nothing on this gun looks Soddy to me. Shoddy yes....More of a cobilization of parts in my opinion...

I'm not an expert but I have looked at a lot of Soddys.  This is not one of them in my opinion.
