Well, I think he bought it dirt cheap hoping that I could fix it. He assumed (wrongly) that since I had a few guns and can clean them, I was some kind of gun mechanic.

I think that you are correct, it must be some kind of partially completed project gun. From what I can tell, there should be a different magazine follower to accomodate the much shorter 7.62 x 39 rounds. I assume there is a difference in the rims on the cartridges as well, and some kind of change needs to be made to the extractor. I've seen some later mausers converted to 7.62 X 39, but never one of the older style mausers. Are there any parts around to complete the conversion?

Thanks for the help
I loves the Surplus!
