The monogram at the bottom is probably GR for George Roth of Vienna,it looks like an 8x50r Steyr round,but I`ve been wrong before......Pete.

Hi you could be right about the GR the G is a lot smaller than the R thanks
just checked with the info you gave and you are right on the dot, it is a Austrain Mannlincher it,s good to find out what it is as iv not seen one before, and it is in very good condition.
Thanks again Dave.
