    Hey there, I think it's a Mannlicher-Schönauer M1903.

    I agree-it looks like a Mannlicher-Schönauer Model 1903. To get the exact version of it, more photos are needed, though.

    It looks kind of like one, but compare the rear of the bolt to one. That is the part that is stumping me

    Are there any markings on it? Perhaps it has been modified by, say, Greece or another country?

    I agree with Pete the rear of the bolt looks like the Carcano bolt.

    Seems to be taking 'rifle cleaning' a little too literally!
