Well, it's probably a Soviet design of some sort, judging by its appearance. Looks like a nice weapon, though. The lack of iron sights mean it was almost certainly originally designed as a sniper rifle.

It's a French FR1 or FR2 sniper rifle. A rifle based on the MAS36 from WWII. All in all pretty darn cool
