We have an old spanish mauser that my dad bought years ago.
Now it's been sporterized, but it was a very redneck job.
I'd like the get another stock and do the job right.

My problem is that I can't seem to find any stocks for the 1893 mauser.

Does anybody know where I can find one?

Are there other models that would work? I've found several 1896 Swedish models, would I be able to use one of those stocks on my spanish rifle?

If the stock requires a bit of inletting, or fitting it isn't a problem.

I just need something that will be close to fitting

An 1893 Mauser will fit an 1894 Swedish Mauser stock, but not a 1896 stock. Or you could just buy an aftermarket stock from www.rifle-stocks.com and finish it yourself.

+1 to Scorch, but I'll suggest to settle for a stock that is already made. I orderd one from Richard's and took me over 9 moths to receive when they told me 6-8 Weeks. I'm happy with the stocks I've recieved but learned my lesson on the first order.

Call them and ask about these stocks they should work with your 93 Mauser.

#05-101-MAUSER MODEL 95 CLASSIC MAPEL 1/2" PAD $49.00

#02-77-MAUSER MODEL 95 CLASSIC CASSADE MAPLE LAMINATE $69.00

#09-106-MAUSER MODEL 95 MONTE CARLO WALNUT GRADE "A" PAD & STUDS $119.00

#14-158-Mauser 95 mauser DUAL GRIP TIGERWOOD LAM. 1" PAD MILITARY $119.00

Out of curiosity, what makes it not fit on the 96 stock?

Does it not fit at all, or does it just require inletting?

The reason I want to know is I've found a bunch of 96 mauser stocks for 10-30 bucks.

It will require inletting in the tang area, and the action on the 1896 Swedish is a little different shape at the rear. 1894 Swedish Mausers are actually built on 1893 actions, the 1896 action is just slightly different.

Cool, i can handle that.

Thanks for the info, I'll get a thread started once I actually get the stuff to show my progress.
