Israel, There are some Hebrew letters on the butt plate.

I do this is a Frankenrifle.. The 30 on the receiver is so South American.. That Butt plate is izzy (By the way I thought it was US at first glance, thanks for better eyes).

Re-barreled to 30-06 and notch cut in receiver ring so bullet point could clear during loading.
From 7.92x57 to 7.62x63mm about a 1/4 inch difference and from the looks of the muzzle pictures it has a well worn bore.
