I have a very nice Steyr rifle received from my son who purchased it about 30 years ago, cannot find a model number.. The name on left side of receiver is "Steyr-Dimler-Puch AG Steyr" .. It has a double-set trigger and a silver(chrome/stainless) bolt and handle, handle is the "butterknife " styler, has raised cheek pad, 23" barrel, I believe it is 30-06 caliber, but cannot find any confirmation of this on the gun. A 30-06 cartridge seem to chamber satisfactorily, but want confirm this before firing the gun. the number 35340 is stamped on right side of the receiver and again on the right side of the barrel .which I assume is the serial number. A number "62" is stamped on left side of the receiver and again of the left side of the barrel. May indicate 1962 for date of manufacture. a safety with red dot is on right side of receiver near or at the rear. the rear end of the bolt has a little "blued" lever that can be raised when the bold is closed, but not sure what it does. it has "made in Austria" stamp on top of receiver..

Any help in identifying this rifle would be appreciated. also approximate value. And a owners manual.

it has a Bausch & Lomb 2.5 x 9 power scope , marked BALVER 8B ,

Stan, from your description you may have a model MCA rifle. The model and caliber are stamped on the top of the receiver but may be obscured/covered by the scope or scope base (unless it has a side mount). If you are unable to see/read it, you would need to remove the scope or a top mounted scope base to get that information. The lever on the bolt is also a safety but can be made inoperable when a scope is mounted which is why there also is the side mounted safety. You are correct in that the '62' stamped on the left is the year of mfg. The value can range from 1K-2K depending on the condition. As far as obtaining a manual, you may need to keep an eye on eBay or the internet in general to see if one pops up. I have a Steyr Luxus from the 1970s and it took a while before I was able to locate one.
