I think it was scrubbed. Pic's aren't very clear and they load really slow for me. You might get an idea of who made it and perhaps when by researching the stamps and proof marks (chalk in the marks helps).
Added Looks like it was made to be a semi-fancy '98' 'German/European' sporting/hunting rifle. Sling stud on a ribbed barrel, double set triggers, engraving, better sights.
Appears to be in good condition - well carried/used. Caliber - no clue from the pic's. I'd say its a shooter not a collector piece.
