Mauser stock question
I am looking at a stock (sporter type) for my Spanish mauser barrelled action (small ring). The stock is advertised as a 98 small ring. I asked the guy to measure the action screws ctc and he said it was 7 13/16 inches. Any help on if this would fit?

If the stock is for a standard 98 action, it will not work. The 98 (with some minor exceptions) is a large ring action.

The German Kar98a and the Mexican M1910 are both small ring, there may be others.

Also Polish K98 and Mexican 1902.
After WWII, the Czech made the ZG47 sporting rifle with a small diameter receiver ring also.

On the pre 98 type cock on closing small ring mausers the bolt spacing is 7.625 inches. On the 98 and later cock on opening, small and large ring standard length actions it is 7.825 in. And the inletting is somewhat different.
The 1893 and 1916 Spanish Mausers take the pre 98 type stock, often called the 1893 type stock, the others the 98 small ring type stock.I swear by Jupiter Optimus Maximus .... in the army of the consul Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus and for 10 miles around it I will not steal anything worth more than a sestertius in any one day.

Good information jjk308, gil and icmunn. Gets confusing doesn't it? Headoftheholler, keep in mind that there are other variants as well. You actually want the action and the stock in hand to try to see if it works.
