Default trying to find gun info

I bought a .270 win from a older gentleman that has a lot of memory lose so he couldn't give me any info on the rifle. I know he got it in the 1950's and that's all I got from him. It's got belium action and has a stamp on it with a circle with JFL in the circle. I can't find anything on this gun so if anyone knows this stamp it would be of great help.

The FN in the circle stands for Fabrique Nationale.
Here is a link about the manufacturer located in Herstal, Belgium.

FN Herstal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nice gun I'll bet it is a good shooter too.

Like 7.62 Man said, it is an FN.
The action looks very similar to the Mauser design.

You have an FN Commercial Mauser built on a large ring 98 action. Does it look like a chrome lined barrel?

They are some of the best Mausers ever made. I have a couple, but not one in .270.

Can you post a good pic of the muzzle? And another of the chamber end?
