Default Spanish or French Flintlock pistol??

Hi,

I traded this flintlock pistol with a friend. Tried to find out who the maker is and where it was made. So far I know (from this excellent forum) that the barrel is Spanish and made by Juan Santos in Madrid. The lock doesn't look Spanish to me. The lock plate is marked "La Roche Paris". I don't believe this is the famous gunsmith who made guns for Louis XV of France but maybe someone with the same name? I'm not very good at flintlock weapons but why put a Spanish barrel on an otherwise French pistol?
