They did most commonly seen on browning high powers but those rifles are pretty scarce. Does seem like an interesting rifle for sure.

Yes, some of the early Browning High Power .308s and .243s were on small ring FN M98s, before they used Sako actions for those calibers. At least they were SR externally, I have heard that they were also true small thread, but some claim that they were large thread simply ground to small ring externally. I have one in .308, but have not pulled the barrel to check. And those SR FN Brownings had the nearly flush bolt stop, this rifle does not. And the Brownings did not have the thumb notch, either.

The triggerguard looks like a kar 98 to me, which were small ring/large shank receivers. Of course that TG may not be original to the action.

Or it could be a small ring Mexican M98, the left receiver rail looks a bit higher than on a std. 98. Not sure if the early transitional Oberndorf commercial SR 98s shared that higher, angled "loading ramp" left rail, or not.

It is an nteresting rifle, anyway.

My probably not too old FN has three leaf sights, claw mounts, holes drilled for a 48, and single set trigger, and the caliber (30-06) is marked on the barrel. I would mount a 48 on it, but it already has the leaves and the scope. I wish I knew more about Mausers so I could participate in this discussion. No importer marks.

Looking through Michael's 2nd Volume, I wonder if it could be a Surkamer or a Worthen. I sure wish
that the seller would have sent on additional pictures.
