Default Need Some Gun I.D. help

Found a rifle w/o the bolt and rusted. I've been cleaning it and I have uncovered the serial numbers. S5529. Need help ID the gun. I believe it's a Spanish Mauser. But I don't know the year or caliber. Please help.

How about pictures of the whole receiver from both sides, including the trigger guard.

If there is no crest on the top of the receiver your chances of identifying its origin are close to if not zero.

Very short barrel for those days. Some type of carbine. The front sight looks original for the gun, so I would say the barrel started off that short. I think they sanded the top of the receiver, then drilled and tapped it for a scope. Definitely some variation of a 98 Mauser.

Spanish mauser for sure. Google 1893 Spanish mauser. The mark on the top is dead giveaway
