Yes, I do… it is a modern manufactured reproduction (most likely Browning Arms).

As I suspected, Browning Arms Company (BACO).

Your rifle as Winchester branded Miroku, a within the decade current model.  Your serial number patters suggests application of the conventional obtuse Browning inspired system of some decades.  IF so, the serial portion reflecting “ZT” letters as production last two digit years, as I recall, indicating 2017 production.  The formula as “Zed” reflecting digit year one. Alphabetically inverse counting up to Tango reflecting the seventh secondary digit. 

The “G” suffix should reflect model but doesn’t compute in that Browning system which likely only applies to their Branded rifles.  Possibly the rifle you’re viewing is a “Cowboy Action Model” or some such designation w/16″ barrel… or other similarly chambered!   

Hopefully rising to “educated guess” my take, both as to the info you’re seeking as well as the content suggested! 🙂

Best!

John
