Default Gun God smiled on me today

Went to the gun show in Tulsa today and found me a great custom built 98 mouser in 7x57 custom open sights high polished bolt rich deep bluing a set of inletted sling studs a high luster deep checkered custom walnut stock with a white spacer recoil pad a set of nice blue steel dovetail rings and base topped off by a vintage very nice blue Weaver k6 scope came with 2 boxes of ammo man it is sure pretty looks like it should for a custom built Rifle I am a happy gun owner and a great price.

After a lot more research and member input it turns out to be a 93 not a 98 and that is what I have found by checking on the net for markings and design.

Nice find! Classic rifle chambered in one of the greatest medium game cartridges of all time.

Still looking for info on this Mouser custom gun I bought. I had ordered out a new Nikon Buckmaster 3x9x40 scope as the Vintage Weaver k6 Weaver scope had too fine a crosshairs that I had a problem seeing any way I also had to reverse the front dovetail base for more ring clearance and with it removed I found a crest under the crest was OV with a space and DO also Had the FN name so I think this may be one made in Belgim It may be a 95 and not a 98 it has the step 23 inch Barrel only other mark I have found is on the side of the receiver 1922 Any ideas I have looked on some of the mouser sites and do find the stamp OV DO but no info.

I would opine that the 23" barrel and the 1922 manufacture date makes this a 98 action and in 7mm a popular sporting rifle. If it is FN made I would not think it a mil-surp action rebarrelled to 7 mm for sport use but rather a factory made sporter. If the action does not have a thumb relief for using stripper clips to reload then it is most likely, imo, a factory sporter. I have a Husqvarna made 98 in 8mm that was made as a sporter and with the exception of the caliber, very much as you describe yours.

Nice catch btw. The 7 mm is a great cartridge and you can't go wrong with a 98.
