View Full Version : Mauser 98 stock interchangeability

December 25, 2009, 07:04 AM
Upgrading a M98 military rifle very often requires a modern commercial stock replacement. Has anyone compiled a list of M98 stock interchangeability? That is, can a Howa, Weatherby Vanguard, BSA Monarch, etc., etc., stock be used or adapted to use on a M98? Which stocks might be used with only a little extra effort at inletting or glass bedding? The concern here is fit, not finish.

No! It must be semi-inletted for your specific action.

I bought a Hogue® Rifle Stock with Pillar Bedding from Cabela's,,,
I think it was $129.95 or thereabouts.

My great uncle's WW-II bringback K98 Mauser fit it,,,
The rifle dropped right in and fit perfectly.

Hope this helps,,,
