Mauser Receiver Thread Size?

I have a Sears/JC Higgins rifle with a Belgium made FN action and I'd like to ask; does anyone KNOW if my action has 60 V threads or does it have square threads?

My dad bought the rifle new in 1956. He and I burned hundreds of corrosive '06 rounds through the barrel before I learned how to use soap and water to clean. I'd like to do something special with this rifle but the above question came up during my initial correspondence with a smith.

Thank you
Matt

Re: Mauser Action Thread?

It should be 12TPI 55 degree, or that's what most mausers are anyway.
