Cuz, I'd go with a VZ-24 if it was me. It's the basic 98 action and everybody and their brother makes triggers, safeties, etc. for them. You can get these for $100 just about anywhere. As long as you get good to very good condition you'll be OK. The one thing that you may not have thought of in making it a single shot is the extractor. The Mausers are controlled feeding rifles and the extractor will at least need to be slightly chamfered in order to work properly. I've never tried it so I don't know if it will work but you might look into installing a Sako type extractor. That would convert it to push feed. If you really want to make an heirloom of it I'd go for having a nice bolt handle welded on. That's about all I can think of right now. But if you have any more questions as the project goes along please post them as well as keeping everyone informed on your progress. George
