No.
The timeline was: Model 36
Model 57 (which was just a refined 36 action)
Both the 36 and 57,( only about fifty 57s were made) have a short three piece bolt,which left something to be desired and were discontinued. Needing a product to sell, Anschutz 1700 series actions were stocked by them.
After that run,
the 57M was developed, based loosely on the Anschutz action.
