Default Custom Day of the Jackal

Has anyone ever thought about making the rifle from the Day of the Jackal movie? Maybe start with a youth .22?

(Scene from the movie where the jackal checks out the rifle)

The novel claimed it was based on an American bolt action. The cartridges appeared to be
.22 magnum rimfire. The gunsmith noted the hollowpoints
were filled with mercury to make them expand explosively
on impact.

The only other rifle I've seen like it was a customized AR-7
