FWIW, there just might be some confusion somewhere, and it might be an Argentine 1909 7.65 Mauser (98) rechambered to .30-06, a common practice in the 1950's, when cheap milsurp rifles were plentiful, but gennie ammo unobtainium.

BTW, some of the world's finest custom sporting rifles have been built based upon military 1909 Argies - it's the only military rifle issued with a hinged floorplate, AFAIK.
