I’m wondering is anyone can help me identify details about this rifle I just picked up. I’ve attached pics of all markings and would love to get any details you may have. Some specifics would be country of origin and year made, ammo that will work best, and anything else interesting. I think it’s German but I just not really sure. Thanks for any help.

That looks as if t may be a G33-40 action from the marks. It would be good to have more clear pictures of the marks. If so, there's some serious money involved in building that rifle. You got a gem. I'm impressed.

It is a G33-40. His #6 picture clearly shows that stamped into his receiver on it's left side..

It's not so clean from on my antique computer. Not crazy about the style but the quality of wood and checkering is very nice.

Here are a few more pics but I’ve akready shown all the markings I can find. It’s a beautiful gums and sounding even better now. Does anyone have an estimated worth? I’m not interested in selling but am curious. Also, can I put 7mm ammo or do I need to find 7-57 specific? Thanks for the help, I do much more with handguns but have recently started getting some rifles and feel a less educated on them.

Is the rifle, for sure, a 7x57. For that rifle,7x57 would be a natural in that rifle. it's always good to check in a built up rifle.

The marks just do not show up well on my machine. Thanks for the help. Wonder if there is a clue on who did the work or make of barrel. I'm thinking that the base, rings and scope may be later than rifle. OP did not ask all this stuff. Just curious.

I'm curious also. That is one expensive rifle he has.

It's still a reworked military rifle and no matter how beautiful it is it won't bring as much as you think. There's the stigma of the "dirty birds" too. More and more people will not let anything with a Swastika on it in their house.

The last built up rifle I had made ran over a $1000.00 with my bringing a nicely converted 98 action. Mine rifle has a B&C stock. There's got to be builders name on that rifle unless it was done piecemeal.

Check out the trigger guard.
The trigger guard show either a mag release or a floor plate release. Mucho custom work in that piece.

However, it WAS a G33/40 - now it's a nicely sporterised medium calibre sporting rifle with a G33/40 action - somewhat like having a Ferrari-engined Chevy. And we STILL don't know who we are talking to.
