We originally thought it was an old 1903 Springfield however side-by-side comparison sed not. it also does not have a Mauser bolt. The caliber is definitely 3006

The bolts release levers in the same spot however there is no safety on the right side very well could be a variant of the Arisaka

purely a guess looking at the bolt release on the LH side of the reciever. reason i said sporterized is the safety isn't on the bolt like the older Mausers but is on the reciever, for scope clearance when the bolt is cycled.

Before being sporterized, looked like this:

m1917_-1.jpg

And if that scope mount was not covering the area right above the chamber, you could likely read the markings.
