posting pictures would give us a much better idea of what it is.

is it a pistol or a rifle?
is it break action, lever action, bolt action, or semi automatic?
little stuff like that can go a long way towards helping identification.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that it might be a brazilian Mauser made by Imbel but I am in no way an expert.

does it look like this?

Probably a 1950s made Mauser pattern rifle by IMBEL (the current name used) in the city of Itajuba for the Brazilian Army. When they switched to a licensed copy of the FN FAL, the bolt guns went on the surplus market.

Cheers,

You probably own the gun in your picture. Mine's just Googl-Fu.

Nope... mine's Googl-Zen too. First thing that popped up with an "Imbel Mauser" search.

Might be worth $zip... might be worth $350 or more. Condition is everything.

Sorry... You got your "one free-throw research per thread" for me.

Ask tahunua001 or Brian... they are both much nicer than I am.

What kind of crazy place do you live in that requires registration of a rifle?

.30 WCF is usually an abbreviation for .30 Winchester Center Fire a.k.a. .30-30 Winchester. The most common guns in this caliber are the Winchester Model 94 and Marlin 336 lever actions, but a wide variety of rifles and handguns have been made in .30-30 over the years. A picture, or at least a more detailed description, would be necessary to identify your firearm.

As to the OP...

When you say 30.06, I think about Pvt. Ryan. He carried a 30.06. Is the gun belt feed by any chance?
