Whitworth Express Rifle .458 Mag, CRF Mauser action

Serial # B100033, 24" barrel has a 3 leaf flip up rear sight. 100-200-300
This rifle is Stamped Whitworth Express Rifle on the left side of the receive and Interarms Alexandria VA on the right of the front receiver ring.
The barrel is stamped Whitworth Rifle Company Manchester England on the top of the barrel in front of the rear sight. No CZ stampings anywhere on the rifle. The rear receiver ring is stamped 0774 just in front of the bolt handle. 1974? The long extractor and the bolt face have some tarnish spots that should polish out nicely.
The Bluing on the barrel, receiver and bottom metal is 99% but there are a few small spots on the bottom of the barrel just behind the front sight ramp and between the front swivel band and the forend tip.
It looks as though there were some small rust spots developing when the previous owner discovered them. You can feel them with your fingernail but they do not jump out at you.
The stock looks like it was never carried. One light small (1/4") pressure mark on the right side next to the trigger guard and an even smaller one (pin head) on the left in front of the rear checkering panel. The checkering is as crisp and sharp as the day it left the factory. Factory front barrel band and rear swivel studs with the factory Brown recoil pad stamped Whitworth in the center. Rifle comes with the Leupold base and rings.
