No, jmr40, I'm not mistaking anything. I'm thinking 1950's - 1970's, the time that Weatherby's flashy Mark V rifles were so popular among upscale American hunters. Think about those pretty rifles from Sweden as Carl Gustaf and Husqvarna.

I'm thinking about my grandfather's Husqvarna bolt-action hunting rifle in .308 from the early 1960's lost in a 1999 home burg and never recovered, sadly.

-hand-checkered Monte Carlo walnut stock with dark matte wood finish
-deep-blued shiny barreled action with "Husqvarna Vapenfabrik" trademark stamped in barrel
-Mauser style action with control-feed extractor claw
-iron sights, hooded front bead
-drilled and tapped for scope mounting
-white spacers
-hard butt plate
-sling swivels
-black pistol grip and for-end caps
-Mauser bolt handle, bare-metal-polished ball-knob with tapered stem that curves
back
-hinged floor plate
-jeweled bolt

No detail overlooked by those old-world Swedes.

Gramp's Husky from Sweden is the gold standard for what I consider the most classic European bolt-action hunting rifle.

Gramp's Husky looks like this one but sans scope:
