Probably wrong but it reminds me of the bolt on the family Marlin 15Y.

Got the brand right, honestly there might be significant parts shared. It's an early model Marlin 100. It's only marked with the Marlin stamping and the caliber, no model, number no serial number.

Dates from the late 30's to early 40's. It's likely the oldest gun I have but my K98k falls right at the end of the production of the early model. All this stuff I had to clean from about 3 paragraphs in the big book of Marlin about the 100. Cheap single shot from the late depression era into WWII.

Handy little gun with a nasty gotcha. If you cock the striker and want to unload the gun, you MUST manually decock before lifting the bolt handle or the gun will fire as the striker notch rotates off the sear, which is no bueno.

The Winchester 67, another cheap manually-cocked single shot .22 from the Depression, does something similar, though if anything even worse. If it's cocked, the bolt hangs up about halfway through lifting it, and then if you put it back down it fires.

They look like charging handles, for what I'm not sure, but I'm guessing that the one on the right also functions as a bolt hold-open if you push it into a recess in the receiver at the right spot.

Good instinct. This is right except the one on the right holds the bolt in place as a safety in the closed state.

Iím so obvious.

So in early Stens it was found you could insert a loaded mag with the bolt forward, drop the gun and possibly cause the bolt to go back far enough to strip a round and fire it. So they added the extra bit and put a hole in the receiver

I was going to guess it was a semi auto tilting bolt. That doesn't leave many choices if you discount any super rare guns. What is yours chambered in?

.30-06. Luxembourg issued rifle. Works great with the same M2 I feed my Garand.

How is the recoil compared to the garand?

Sharper would be the best way to describe it. The recoil impulse is just longer on the Garand, and ends up feeling softer, probably because of that huge as gently caress op-rod and big rear end bolt all clonking around doing their things. That said, it also feels like it moves a little less when you fire it, again probably because you don't have all that reciprocating mass bouncing around.

No flaps, no rollers, and I know you don't have a G41(M) yet so that narrows it down pretty good.

They made something like 20,000 for troop testing and never formally adopted it. So yeah, it's fairly rare.
