The gun pictured by tater134 is the carbine version with the flattened (so-called "butterknife") bolt handle. The rifle (Gewehr or Gew.) had a longer barrel and straight bolt handle with a round knob.

As Scorch says, those ex-military rifles were often converted to hunting rifles, sometimes with enough alterations that their origin is barely recognizable.
