You have what's referred to as a "sporterized military Mauser" - restocked, bolt handle altered, reblued, etc.

It was originally mde by FABRICA de ARMAS OVIEDO,ESPANA, a Manufacturer of Arms in Oviedo, Spain.

They were a major manufacturer of Mauser type rifles for the Spanish Military during the entire first half of the last century (1900-1951).

Your rifle is a Model 1893 Spamish Mauser, chambered in 7x57 (7mm) Mauser - an excellent/popular hunting cartridge.
