Identify this rifle?

I didn't see any marks, maybe I just don't know where to look.

Whats on the barrel? Caliber?


The stock, bolt, and profile look like a Remington 700.

There is an insignia or design on the bolt handle?

Mauser, probably a conversion or maybe factory like a Interarms for instance.

That's the problem... the only marking I found without removing anything (screws/optic/etc) was the stamp on the bolt handle.

I opened the chamber and found nothing. I am not with the rifle right now. I looked in (what I thought are) the obvious places but found nothing.

Try loading some bullets? or bring out the calipers to check caliber?

I guess the engraving/knurling pattern looks like this 700, but they are two different guns, and the 700 has markings to indicate what it is. (attached, not the gun from the first post)

If I remove the scope, how likely is it that it will return to where it was when I replace it? I read about some older mounted optics are meant to be swapped between guns and the zero is set on the mounts that remain on the gun.

My Father brought an Arisaka home from WWII. It has the Bolt release on the left side under the scope mount but the safety is different.
I guess it is a Mauser of some sort?
I own a Remington 700 BDL from the 80's and it does not have that bolt release on it.

Mauser. Unmistakeable.

It's a Model 98, likely a conversion of a milsurp. A lot of sporting rifles were built on surplus Model '98 actions.

Very different from a Remington 700.

Notice the huge extractor on the side of the bolt. That screams "Mauser" from two counties away. Totally different from the M700 push-feed set up. The Mauser extractor catches the rim of the cartridge before it enters the chamber, providing "controlled feed."

You will see that same Mauser extractor on commercial near-clones like the Winchester Model 70 and the Ruger 77.

The safety looks reshaped a bit, but otherwise unconverted. It looks like it won't clear the scope, though.

Are we looking at the same picture? Third one down.



If you need to find the caliber, you can make a chamber cast with cerrosafe.
