I would say it's a German/Austrian custom rifle built on a commercial Mauser 98 action.

I've run across a few very similar - and FWIW, the bottom metal looks like commercial Mauser, since mlitary guard screws had smaller secondary lock screws indented into their heads to keep them from loosening.
I suppose military bottom metal could have had the auxilliary holes filled/welded/finished flush, but I don't think that happened here.

BTW - I own a .30-06 Parker Hale built on a commercial Mauser 98 action, complete with the "military" thumb notch in the left receiver wall, and integral scope mounting dovetils on top ala Ruger/Sako for PH Roll-Off rings.
