    Swiss Model 1881 Vetterli, perhaps?

    The receiver area reminds me of an old Swiss Vetterli.

    Yes, there were some centerfire German (IIRC) rifles made like that.

    its worth half of what they're asking for it, I do believe its the carbine model and with the rust and cracked stock its worth a hundred bucks. get rid of the rust and then the price would be fair.

    The Norwegian 10.15mm Jarmann was a tube fed bolt action, but unless I'm mistaken it was loaded from the top. Adopted in 1884, replaced in 1894. Not the first repeating rifle to be adopted by the military, but the first one to be produced in significant numbers.
