    On first impression these rifles where marketed as FN-Sauer rifles. Made by Sauer and sold under the FN name or the other way around, I am not sure about that. Locking bolts on the back/behind side of the bolt.

    Hi Hales,
    thanks for that, yes it has got locking bolts to the back of the bolt and the only identifying marks are as you say FN-Sauer and of course the serial number?

    Thats a fairly rare rifle you have there, and Hales Smut is correct its an FN-Sauer:
    The Rifle is based on the Sauer Model 80 action. was introduced in 1977 production continued until 1982.
    Checking the date on the proofmarks will give you an approximate date of manufacture

    If you contact Sauer they should be able to help you with the date via the serial number.

    Its probably worth something, Ive only ever seen 1, which means they are pretty rare. here at least.

    regards Pete
