posting pictures would give us a much better idea of what it is.

is it a pistol or a rifle?
is it break action, lever action, bolt action, or semi automatic?
little stuff like that can go a long way towards helping identification.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that it might be a brazilian Mauser made by Imbel but I am in no way an expert.

does it look like this (http://www.google.com/imgres?num=10&um=1&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1904&bih=939&tbm=isch&tbnid=ix7f_WFYTSR5nM:&imgrefurl=http://www.littlegun.info/arme%2520bresil/militaires/a%2520mauser%2520gb.htm&docid=q20-bxaYzn5M5M&imgurl=http://www.littlegun.info/arme%252520bresil/militaires/mauser%252520bresil%252520mod%25252030%252520m954%252520empire%252520arms-01.jpg&w=864&h=317&ei=PqIhUMDaCZHvqQHujYDIAw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=317&vpy=178&dur=1703&hovh=136&hovw=371&tx=210&ty=62&sig=113459193187790538033&sqi=2&page=1&tbnh=66&tbnw=180&start=0&ndsp=45&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:0,i:76)?

Probably a 1950s made Mauser pattern rifle by IMBEL (the current name used) in the city of Itajuba for the Brazilian Army. When they switched to a licensed copy of the FN FAL, the bolt guns went on the surplus market.

Nope... mine's Googl-Zen too. First thing that popped up with an "Imbel Mauser" search. :rolleyes:

and a spot for a bayonet in the front???

Like so?

What kind of crazy place do you live in that requires registration of a rifle?

.30 WCF is usually an abbreviation for .30 Winchester Center Fire a.k.a. .30-30 Winchester. The most common guns in this caliber are the Winchester Model 94 and Marlin 336 lever actions, but a wide variety of rifles and handguns have been made in .30-30 over the years. A picture, or at least a more detailed description, would be necessary to identify your firearm.

As to the OP...

When you say 30.06, I think about Pvt. Ryan. He carried a 30.06. Is the gun belt feed by any chance?
