    I believe this is a high end European hurting rifle , as I don't believe the Gew 98 or the K98 ever used double triggers even in sniper rifles .

    Chris is correct.

    A nice hunting rifle using the Mauser system.


    Cheers, Ade.

    It will be matching the set triggers , small rear sight and action that will tell the tale . Could be any number of European makers , many firms used the Mauser action .
