INTERARMS Mannlicker Mark X 7X57 help

Hello, I was hoping you all could help me. I read some posts here about the INTERARMS Mark X Mannlichers and I just purchased one but I’m a little confused as to what it is exactly. It was produced In 1977 and on the bottom of the receiver (hidden under the stock) is says made in Yugoslavia but on the side of the gun it only mentions Alexandria Virginia and Manchester England. It is a 20” barrel chambered in 7X57 with a single adjustable trigger and it has the BRNO “butter bolt.” It’s got a ramp style fixed front site and a collapsible rear site also affixed to the top of the barrel. I’m trying to figure out exactly what model it is and I’m having a lot more trouble than I ever anticipated. From what I’ve been able to read the “Continental Mannlicher” is the only one that came with the BRNO but that only came with a double trigger? The “Marquis Mannlicher” apparently had the single adjustable trigger but with the standard bolt? It doesn’t say Zastava or whitworth on it anywhere and the serial number does not start with a letter. I was told by one gentleman that ALL of the original Mannlicher’s were actually whitworths but I can’t seem to verify that. I just can’t find which model came with the single adjustable trigger and the BRNO. I have seen a couple of others out there, very few chambered the same, but none have been very descriptive about model. I believe it to be all completely original and unfired. I purchased it from a friend of mine who’s father purchased it many years ago before passing away. He disassembled it with the intentions of carving his own custom stock and never did it so it has sat outside it’s stock all these years. I would just like to Learn as much as I can about it and I saw a thread on this site with some folks who seemed very knowledgeable about these rifles. I guess I would just like any help I could get with the following info:
A.) were all the factory 20” barrels mannlichers?
B.) were all the INTERARMS Mark X mannlichers “Whitworths” (even without the whitworth markings) like I’ve been told?
C.) What models mannlichers came with the single trigger and the BRNO bolts?
D.) After he passed away his son lost the metal nose cap to it and the sling clip hardware from the bottom of the stock. Does anyone know of a good source for INTERARMS specific parts?

It’s a gorgeous weapon in incredible condition. The bolt, action and the barrel look like they just rolled off the assembly line and the stock is in great shape. I’ve heard a lot of folks talk about the quality of the blueing on these Interarms and if I wasn’t a believer before - I am now. I can’t wait to get it out in the field once I get it all put back together. I’ve never owned or fired a 7X57 but I’ve read nothing but good things about them. I’m looking forward to seeing how it stacks up to all my other sporters. I currently tend to reach for my FN 308 converted Mauser 98 or my Model 8 35 Remmy... curious to see how she stacks up. Any help would be really truly appreciated. Thank you

At one time it was easier to use the Brits as a go between when dealing with Yugoslavia, and other sources of firearms. The Brits require a local proof and markings. The Importer must also mark the guns as the source.

Who notes this is the extent of his knowledge. Cross reference "Forgotton Weapons" on Full 30 or Facebook.

Well it looks like I got the answers to some of my questions. The elusive model that I couldn’t find much about is the The Mark X “Mannlicher Carbine.” I’ve learned that the carbines were only produced and assembled in England and they did come with the BRNO “butter knife” bolt, adjustable single trigger, 20 inch barrels and the actions came complete from Zastava prior to assembly. I have no idea how many were produced but they are a “Whitworth” rifle and apparently they are very sought after and difficult to find, especially chambered in the 7X57. So that makes me even happier with my purchase. If anyone knows of any additional information about it I would love to hear it. Thank you. Can’t wait to get this puppy back together and give it a go.

It seems that a lot of the confusion was coming from the fact that only the earliest ones (late 70’s - very early 80’s) were done this way and from what I can tell the key to spot one is in the sights. The later ones apparently did not come with the two sights affixed to the barrel and they did not come with the BRNO bolt and those were seemingly manufactured in Zastava and not Whitworth.

And I was just corrected... apparently they were made this way earlier and up to the late 70’s - early 80’s before they changed. Sorry.. still learning
