Yes, it does look different. That's why he said "Sporterized" and "or". But, if you're just looking for magazines, use the link provided.

No, not rare, in fact the rifle in the stock picture you posted is more rare than yours. Your's is simply a working rifle, if you can find a mag for it. Your's is a military rifle that has been "modified" to be used as a hunting rifle. It probably had a scope on it at one time since the mounts are still attached.

Clean it up, find a mag and you will have a rifle to use (if the bore is good and it shoots straight) or something you can sell for about $100 - $150.

At this point in the discussion, I would suggest you find a good Canadian gunsmith or gunshop at the least, and take your rifle in to make sure you get the right parts. They may offer you $75 on the spot, or maybe not.
