Need Help Identifying a Rifle

My son-in-law recently acquired a .22 bolt-action rifle that we are trying to identify (sorry, no photo). Description:

The magazine is a removable box-type
The fore stock is grooved
The stock is recessed to receive the bolt knob when folded
The bolt knob is knurled and hollowed out
The rear sight is adjustable and the blade folds
The safety is a swinging Mauser-type
On top of the receiver, immediately in front of the sight, are the following (and only) markings:

UMC 2
1972
U-2851

Thanks all.

The stock folds? Or the recess is there for when the bolt is lowered? That might put a hiccup in the identifiables. Other than that, it sounds like a close relative to the Polish Cugir UMC1969 rifle. Google that and see if it's close.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

My bad, maybe it's the Romanian Cugir M1969.

Seconded, although a picture would be definitive.

Yep, have one myself. Real stiff trigger. Otherwise a good gun.
