What action is this

I'm confused and would like the help of LRH I have a rifle that I thought was a Weatherby, but when I bought a set of scope bases for it the rear base was not spaced correctly, the shop owener said it was an A bolt but the A bolt is deferent looking but the rear base did fit so I went home and when I tried to put the front base on it was not the wright contour for the action. If any one hase any Info I would be very greatful.

Thanks.

The brand should be marked on the side of the action.

If not look on the barrel.

OR = Take a close up of the action and bolt.

You can also try bumping the serial number against Browning Date Your Firearm - A-Bolt / A-Bolt II Rifle
