A quick search turned this up
Interarms -- in Alexandria VA -- sold both Zastava and Whitworth rifles that were made in Kragujevac Yugosalvia -- now Serbia -- but shipped only as actions or barreleled actions.
The Whitworth company in Manchester England,bought actions, rebarreled them IIRC and gave the actiosn more final finishing. They are thus a bit smoother and desirable. From Manchester, they sold some barreled actions to Interarms which did the restocking here with Italian made stocks and marketed the finished rifles in the US. Whitworth restocked others for sale elsewhere.
From what I have heard this should be about right. I've not owned an Interarms mark x, but I think they are now being sold as a Remington model 798. I could be mistaken though.
Assuming the rifle is in very good condition, I think you'll be very satisfied with your Mark X. Good luck in the field.
I have an Interarms Mk X Whitworth in 7mm Remington magnum. It's heavy as can be but accurate and dependable, a trusted old friend.
I have an Interarms MKX Zastava in a .20 that my father bought back in the late 70's. The only thing that I have done besides clean it is change out the original Redfield Widefield scope that was on the gun when dad picked it up at the gun shop. It is a great gun and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
Sorry guys, dropped the 7, my MKX is a .270 cal.
