    It looks to be built somewhat like a Mauser.
    I have an old 8MM mauser, genuine german. Many countires pretty much copied the Mauser style.
    And yes you push the ammo down into the magazine with the bolt open.

    That is a Mauser 98 K. Most likely an Eastern block reproduction. Its isn't Vietnam era sweetie. It is WW2 era. Without seeing the proofmarks, I can't identify it with anymore detail. It is definately a K98k, but the fact that the bolt handle is straight tells you that it isn't German. Could Yugo, Chech, or Turkish.

    Not uncommon with reproductions. I sporterized a Turkish K98k. It had a straight bolt handle, before I cut it off.

    Mine was genuine WW2 surplus. My grandfather paid I think $7 for it.
    If you remove the heelplate on the stock it has a swastika burned into the end of the stock.

    Shoots fine, I have only killed a couple of coyotes with it.

    That is definitely a WWI Mauser barrel/receiver in a WWII stock. Can't tell if there are any Waffen marks but that would not always happen. Many such weapons were issued (out of obsolete stock) to local Volkstrom units at the end of the war. The two sections could have been mated at that time or afterwards, who knows, the original stock could have been trash and was replaced with a modern one before it was issued. Also large numbers of weapons were modified by their owners after the war. Large numbers of K98s were modified as sporting rifles for hunting. Hell, someone could have recently unsporterized it, mating the two halves together and sold it as a WWII "authentic" piece.
