I have a mauser action I'm trying to identify, that is, either mauser or 'mauser style'. it's got the traditional mauser bolt, shroud, lugs, handle, extractor claw, etc. the safe is on the right hand side on the stock (sako style), the safety button has two raised little pyramids for traction back or forth obviosly. The release catch is on the left hand side, it's a square block of steel that you pull outwards and towards you to release the bolt from the action. The action has nothing on it but a serial number starting Z56xxxxx.
I believe it was originally built in Denmark, perhaps by Otterup (Shultz Larsen), but may not be the case tbh, that's based on the barrel sitting on it..
I'm trying to find out if it's an old PH, actual Mauser, or other 'mauser style' action, FN, etc. it has been rebarrelled and re-stocked since the original I think.
sorry, forgot to say that it's a hinged floorplate magazine design with the release button inside the front of the trigger guard.
could it be a supreme action from '57 to '74, as used by both sako and browning, product code z to indicate it was a finish made sako for browning...?
any help is appreciated.
