    I want to id this rifle, get an approximate date of manufacture, and an approximate value.

    I believe it to be a 6.5mm Dutch Mannlicher of some type.

    As far as markings: Hembrug 1908 on the wood stock butt, Hembrug 1917 on the receiver. 5001A serial number with royal symbol above the #s. All parts matching serial# including stock. Long barrel with wing-tip sight. As far as blue, I am an amateur at judging this so hopefully the picture shows. There is still quite a bit of blue left. The bore looks really clean. There is pitting on the steel butt-plate.

    I think there was probably wood down the length of the barrel with bayonet lug in its earlier life and is not present today?

    I have an older copy of a blue book of gun values but couldn't id this rifle using it.
