Lots of replacement stocks out there for commercial Mauser 98 rifles. You can buy a Boyds and get it up and running quickly, or work up a Richards Microfit stock for it. The main difference between the Browning High-Power Safari and a regular 98 is the bolt stop and the quality of the finishing work.

As far as the salt wood stock goes, you will have rust on the metal, some worse than others. I just sold a Browning T-Bolt that had a salt wood stock on it. It had a bit of rust and pitting but not terrible. I have seen them from almost no rust/corrosion to terribly pitted, there is no way to tell how bad yours will be until you take it out of the wood.
