Welcome to the forum! Just take a picture of it and post it. You can tell where it was built by which arsenal stamp it has. The two common ones are the triangle with an arrow in it, which means it was built at Izehevesk, or the star shaped one, which designates Tula.

This gun has a Remington armory barrel in 30.06. I know they built some rifles for mosin but I don't know if this is one of them. The action is hex with ser. no. 585369 on the bolt. The stock is a monte carlo type. Any help would be appreciated.

Nice find these are rare. The best way to tell is on the barrel or by looking for the marking that assasinbeen mentioned. It may be that you gun is made of parts from several manufacturers. I know some of mine are made from mixed parts.
The first one below is a finnish one and below that is a tula

At the very back of the tang (you will have to take it a part to see) there should be a makers mark and date. That will tell you what you want to know.

I believe the second one down is an Izhevsk by the hammer and sickle, also a triangle with an arrow. Tula would be a giant star with I believe an arrow in it.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Remington built actions as well. Generally, the Remington barrels are on the Remington actions as few people switch out the military barrels. There were several companies that sporterized the Remingtons. Very few of them changed the caliber though. If yours is stamped 30-06, it could be a bannermans conversion which are widely regarded as unsafe to shoot. If you would post a pic of the top of the action we could probably tell you if it is or not. It doesn't look like a bannermans stock, but those are easy enough to change.
