Give a couple more photos of the action with bolt no barrel needed.. Both sides. Hard to tell with that. Is there anything on the barrel? It does say 7mm rem mag right on the barrel right? Anything else?

yes it does and cleaning bolt will have pics tomorrow. I know the bolt is held in by a piece of metal and a screw turns the piece to release the bolt. it says 43t on one side and that f 81 to the left of it

Looks like a 1903 bolt
This look familiar?

Dragon,

WARNING!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I would not shoot the rifle and especialy a 7 mm Remington Magnum after the rifle has been in a fire. In all probability the temper or the steel has been damaged in the fire. (*Changed! ) And could possibly blow up when a round is fired in it. So before I spent any money on it I would contact a professional gunsmith not just a repair shop and have someone that knows about this condition and the metallurgical property specification do some testing on the rifle. Unfortunately, fires have ruined a many of good weapon by damaging the temper of the steel. Even though it is not a Remington or Winchester I would contact the technical division of those companies and speak to a tech. specialist about the fire and effects it could have on the metal. They will have the information for you since I am sure it is not their first time they have been confronted with this question and possibly have done testing in this area.
Information and a word of Caution Only!

03

Very good point. I should have thought about that. How badly damaged was the stock?
