identify mauser action

I have my dads rifle after he passed on, its a sporterized mauser action , 30-06, rebarreled, timney trigger...old barrel unkown location.
I would like to put a decent scope on this rifle and shoot it and possible deer hunt with it a time or 2 for nostalia sake.
My dad was left eye dominant, yet right handed. So he had really high mounts so that he could shoot accuratley, I am just the opposite and find the current set up unusable.
It has i believe kwikee over/under base/rings.Its the ones that are 1 piece ring/base combo in the rear and again in the front.
How do i identify what type of mauser action to get the right bases and rings for a 2.5x 10 x50 scope?
I have read about m model 98, k model 98, fn model 98...
I ahve no idea about this rifle
There is nothing on the new barrel except a 30-06 stamp.

Re: identify mauser action

There should be some I.D. on the left side rail and on the receiver ring. Since you're going to change mounts and rings, look at the top of the receiver ring while you've got the bases off.

If you can post a few pictures, preferably with the bases off, that'll be a big help. If not, P/M me your email address, and I will help you if I can.

Google mauser central. They have a page on how to identify your action.
