Since it appears to be chambered for the 7mm Remington Magnum, your rifle would have been made well after Remington introduced the cartridge in 1962.


The commercial FN Mauser you have happens to be the best-made bolt action available, based on the Mauser 98 (1898) - since it has all the Mauser 98 safety features, plus some upgrades by FN, like the streamlined bolt handle, bolt sleeve, & sliding side safety ILO a rotary safety atop the sleeve.

IMHO, you made a decent purchase.

If you remove the two guard screws and lift the barreled action out of the stock, there might be some further identifyling marks stamped into the hidden areas of the barrel and/or action sides/bottoms.
