Good observation. It might be an early commercial FN action, which copied the 98. Notice also the modern bolt handle.

Not sure about the bolt handle, might be the original. The bolt shroud is from a military '98. Lots of parts have been changed around on Mausers, just because they'll fit!

Re: Action identification?

Yes M98 large ring mauser, Zanstanvsa, FN Belgum or some commerical (rem798) make. Bolt handle looks to be non forged as it's to long for that conversion and not shaped right for a commerical sweep. Bolt shroud is military and I would think it would have a commerical smooth shroud and side trigger safety. Easily handles 55000-65000psi max. From what is shown there is no safety, might want to look into that.

Just my observation, kinda like mausers.
