it is a heavily modified springfield.
1. the decocking lever in the back has been completlely removed.
2. it's been drilled and tapped for a two piece weaver mount.
3. the bolt handle and body are both custom make, suggests that it is no longer in it's original 30-06
4. the stock is a very nice sporterized stock with a lot of expensive checkering.
the front sight post is also not original to the rifle which in addition to the word FEREN leads me to believe that this was a rebarrel as part of a caliber conversion.


essentially you have a very well made hunting rifle built off of a 1903 springfield action, it no longer shares much in common with it's military use brethren and is beyond restoring to original condition but it should be a great shooter, probably not worth more than $500.
