It's probably ok but I wouldn't want to be the first to pull the trigger.

personally i would not risk it. its not direct fire damage but sustained heat that damages metal. melted stock means the rifle sustained a very high heat for a period of time.

what type of fire? house fire? too close to a campfire? was the stock that was damaged wood or synthetic? because if it was synthetic, less heat was involved to damage vs. wood. post some pictures of the damaged stock if you can.

the action and bolt look to be a Mauser type and could be a 1903 Springfield that was sporterized.

It is a Model 98 Mauser action of some sort. It appears to be yugoslavian but I can't see enough to be sure. If the springs are still good, the action is PROBABLY alright but there are, of course, no garantees. I would first depress the magazine spring all the way down and, if it bounces right back, I would figure the rifle didn't get hot enough to hurt. It is important to note that I am widely regarded as a brave but slow-witted individual! GD
