There was a Remington Model 30 (not "1930") and there was a Remington Model 1934. Some 3000 of the latter were made on contract for Honduras, in 7x57 caliber. Both the Model 30 sporting rifle and the Model 1934 were built using leftover Model 1917 receivers and other parts from the huge WWI military contracts. In fact, Remington never made any center fire bolt action receivers or any .30 bolt action barrels from the end of WWI to the start of WWII. All the Model 30, Model 30S and Model 720 production used that vast store of leftover Enfield parts.

The picture is not of any of those well-known rifles. I hope Bigbird34 didn't pay much for that rifle.
