Yup, sounds like you have a reworked military mauser. Lots of them got made into hunting rifles in the 50s and 60s.

I'm going to move this into the rifles topic where it might get a little more focused attention. Welcome to the forum.
I've carried one in the field, just haven't connected with it yet. Can't wait to see the picture of a dead pig!!!!
