Default Rifle ID help

I recently aquired a rifle but have no clue what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry for the blurry pictures. The only markings on the rifle are "S6179" on both the gun and the bolt. The other marking is what looks like a Q on the bolt.

Thanks
Cory

Can you get pictures that are clear? Maybe lay off the 24 pots of coffee in a day.

Im no expert and its a little hard to tell. Thought a 98 mauser at first glance but looking at bolt shroud it looks like it could be an earlier cock-on-close model.

Mauser action, cut for stripper clips, small front reciever ring.
I'm guessing that it cocks on closing?

There is NOTHING stamped on top of the front ring? Looks lightly
sporterized, but might be correct military config. They made literally
MILLIONS of them for just about everybody in the late 19th/early 20th
century. Spain, Chile, Sweden, etc. etc. etc. The bolt action Mauser
was the hot ticket in the 1890's.

What is the caliber? That will help narrow it down. Is there a brass disc
(or evidence that there was one) inlet into the side of the buttstock?

Caliber is unknown. I do not plan on shooting it. It does cock when closed. There is no evidence of a brass disk in the stock. There is nothing else stamped in it anywhere.

Small ring Mauser. Looks like my Spanish short rifles. Most common caliber was 7 X 57 (7mm Mauser). Stock is pretty, new?

You can have a gunsmith take a chamber casting and determine caliber.

Thanks everyone for your help so far. The stock is not new, it is just in very good shape. It has to be several decades old. It was my fiancée's grandmas old hunting rifle. It hasn't been used in about 50 years.

Im a little light on mausers but this is either a model 93, 95, or 96. The bolt schroud gives that away. Most 93 and 95's were 7x57 caliber and most 96's were 6.5x55 swede. If you could give us the markings on the front bridge of the reciever, you could get more imformed advice.
