I would prefer a conventional scope mte. for hunting. There's not enough info to make a decision on value. FN didn't produce a synthetic scout model to my knowledge, so it's a conversion of some kind. Personally IMHO i would keep looking. PS> I like the cartridge though.

FN produced a lot of Mauser rifles in a lot of calibers for military (and civilian) use. 7mm mauser was a relatively popular military round at one point. It sounds like tis a sporterized mauser of somesort.
