Old and very rare:
Remington 700 ADL or BDL?
You got me. All I can say is it's a mauser action without a flag safety on a turned down bolt.
It's not a Mauser. It's a pre-64 Winchester Model 70.
Not even a fair guess.
Accurate assessment of the action.
Weatherby something or other.
Bingo. This is a very early (late 40s or early 50s) Weatherby rifle built on a FN commercial Mauser action and chambered in 300 Weatherby Magnum. Prior to the introduction of the Mark V action, all Weatherby rifles were built on FN or Brevex Mauser actions.
Groovy, what I win? (lol).
helps if you give pictures of other parts of the gun,
you can tell by looking at its either quality refinished,
or very old / quality blueing ..
and it really does look like it comes off the remington assembly line ..
The rifle in the pictures is newer than I thought. I just checked the serial number and it was made in 1957.
Dang, late to the party. Yep, the skip checkering, pistol grip cap and fore-end cap all say Weatherby.
...and the radical "California" Monte Carlo cheekpiece. All classic Weatherby.
Late too, good lookin gun. The action looks just like the ones on my old Mausers, except it's missing the safty switch. The action on my Remington model 700 looks very similar but not quite the same.
Woop, looks like I missed m2hmghb's response to this. Still a good lookin gun, I bet it's real accurate.
Interesting rifle. At first glance it looked like a sportized Mauser, but its hard to say. Cool looking at old sporting type rifle, not something you see everyday.
It is. That's what the early stuff Weatherby did was.
Not really. A "sporterized" Mauser is a military action and/or rifle that has been converted to a hunting rifle. Roy Weatherby never had his early rifles built on military actions. The FN and Brevex Magnum actions he used were new commercial Mauser actions.
