    Howdy and Welcome Braidy,

    Without a picture, I'd say your Dad is right, the action is a Belgium made FN Mauser. A very fine action made of some of the best steel in the world. Your action probably started as a military gun supplied to the Peruvian army. Is it "sporterized"? This means that perhaps it was re-barreled for the .30-06 cartridge, and the stock looks like a hunting gun rather than a military gun. If you can get a picture posted, we might do better with some info for you.
