    I inhearited a nice looking rifle without any identification other than a SN and the word "Spain" in the casting of the action and the trigger guard. The SN starts with D-03xxx.
    The bolt release is the typical 98 release as opposed to the spring type found on other models. It has a Parker Hale triger assembly. The bolt shroud is the aftermarket type witout the safety.
    Any suggestions? I can post pics if needed.

    Probably not a Mauser 98 type action but a Mauser 93 type action if it is Spanish. See SPANISH MAUSERS.

    If it is a large-ring Mauser 98 action and made in Spain it was probably originally a Spanish Model 1943 made in Spain at La Coruna.

    Since it lacks a thumb cut it's most likely a Santa Barbara commercial action.
    Santa Barbara of LaCaruna Spain built war era rifles under Mauser contract, and later built sporter rifles, including actions with .473 and belted magnum sized bolt faces.
