Is this an Austrian Lorenz rifle? The ones I have seen do not have a bulge in the center of the metal plate. Thanks in advance.

I think that might be a common U.S. M.1816/22 percussion conversion which does have a sideplate of that shape; unfortunately, the way he's holding it at the wrist makes it a little difficult to determine if it has that particular wedge-shaped butt or not:
