its an upper receiver from a bolt action rifle.It has Steyr 1907 stamped on the receiver and what appears to be a Knight on a horse on the bolt shank just below the knob and on the trigger assembly it has a circle with a funny looking cross in it.

I can't up load the pics from my work computer and my computer at home is on the fritz, but I will be installing my new computer at home tomorrow and will post the pics then.

By "upper receiver" you mean "action"?

Is it one of these?

Can you work the bolt? Is it a traditional bolt action or is it a straight pull?

If it is a straight pull, that is a really strong sign that it is a 1895.

Is it like this?

As I suspected, it's a Mannlicher-Schoenauer, probably one made for Greece. (See my link for Wikipedia (prior post).

ahh thank you for the Info.Now my friend just needs to find a stock for it.lol

By what I read on that Wikki link there are plenty of parts still avalible.

Is it worth it to find a stock for it ? Or is this religated to the dust bin?

Thank you again!

Its probably not worth restoring but if you can figure out what the receiver threads are that action would make a very nice sporter.

In the practical sense it probably is not worth restoring but if it were me I would definitely turn it into a project and see how close to original I could get it. Keep an eye on gun broker, eBay, and the surplus stores for stocks and parts.
