I have inherited an Interarms 30-06 from my father. I would like to get some any information on it. There is not a model number stamped on it.

It is chambered in 30-06 with a 24" barrel. The action is similar to a Mauser. It is marked Manchester England / Alexandria Virginia.

Any idea where I can get info on this gun?

Interarms was an importer and made nothing. The rifle you have is one of several models differing mainly in appointments and stock styles. They were manufactured in Yugoslavia and are basically mauser 98 copies. Some have said they suffered somewhat from poor quality but those I have seen ranged from alright to fantastic.. Most had wood stocks and adjustable triggers, although a double set trigger mechanism was available in some models... Prices in my book (a couple of years old) Range from a low of $125(poor condition) to a high of $550. I would suggest that these prices may be a bit low, especially the higher, as I have seen them bring somewhat more... a very nice clasic mauser style sporter... Good luck from the gunnut69

My older brother had one back in the 70's and it was a very accurate gun I'm sure its what you have "Interarms Mauser X" they were nice looking guns too. BigBill :D

interarms 30-06

Kirkwick: what you have is like the other have stated a Interarms mark x that was manufactured in yugoslavia by chanch if you look on the left side of the tang it should state it. or it could have the letters ZCZ stamped there anyhow I have one in 22-250 and have had them in the 30-06 and they were fine to vary fine for the price paid for them. they were made in different models and caliber model was more dependent on the stock design than anything else as all the actions except the magnum action are the same length. Enjoy your rifle they are harder to find every day. :D JIM

Interarms Mark X,

Those were pretty good actions. Not something that most would build a full house custom on but nice none the less. Some say that they were built off of the old tooling for the Belgium FN actions which were very good actions. They are a little more polished than the FN's though, which isn't a good thing. The rifle was available from the standard size cartridges clear up to the 375 H&H. There was also a mini mark X but it wasn't the same action, more like a Sako. The Mark X was a controlled round feeding action, like the Mausers that it was copied from.
It's not really right to call it a Mauser action, a 98 would be more accurate. Mauser actions were built by Mauser, the 98 action was built by lots of different companies. The Mark X came from Yugoslovia, which was once Chezckoslovokia, (hope the spelling is right :lol: ). They made the vz 24 thats the rage right now for custom guns.
You have a great gun, much better than most new guns manufactured today.

It was manufactured by Zastava, should say so on the gun some where.
