Looks to me like what you've got there is a mauser 98. Not 100% sure but that would be my guess. Many different manufacturers and came in large and small diameter barrels. Do you have any pictures of the markings, and what does the registration say is the make/model?

You have a Voere model STLF3. This is a commercial mauser type action. P-80591 is the ser # and should ALSO be on the left side of receiver ring proving bbl is original. Doesn't say for STLF3 but I would check if you have a set trigger. When cocked, if pushing backwards on the trigger gives a click you will have a HAIR trigger to fire. Voere are quality rifles, nice piece!

There are two Voere companies, one in Germany and this one in Kufstein, Austria. They still make Mauser-actioned rifles and they look very fine indeed!

A small correction to 7mmBR - if you have a single set trigger, pushing it forward toward the muzzle will set it as a hair trigger. If you don't do so, it'll just be a regular trigger pull. The set function is best used only on a range...

The website at www.voere.com shows some really interesting stuff, including caseless ammunition and the XXL safari rifle with an almost comically oversized bolt.
