M48a

I've recently added an m48a to my collection, or parts of one let's say.
It came in an ATI stock which I removed to find a fairly decent barreled action underneath.
I'm looking for a magazine/trigger guard, and rear sight and most places I have checked run thin on m48a parts..
If you know where I might look and find such pieces, I'd appreciate it if you replied here.
Thanks, hooligan1

Stuff for the M48 on eBay… difference with the M48A is the trigger guard is stamped on the later gun. The M48 one is milled.

Hey, it's hooligan!

You can use an M48 or 24/47 rear sight, as well.
Same goes for the bottom metal. For that matter, you could even use FN1924 pattern bottom metal, and any of the 1924 pattern derivatives that stayed with the intermediate length action. (Not the Vz24.)

Also, small ring Mauser bottom metal should fit. I have Spanish 1893s and 1916s, and that bottom metal does, in fact, fit my Yugo 1924 and 24/47. (Sorry, I didn't want to disassemble the M48 to try there.) 1895 pattern Mausers should be the same, but I do not have the parts with which to check fitment.

One or more of the above are in stock currently at:
Apex Gun Parts
eBay
Liberty Tree Collectors
Numrich (Gun Parts Corp)
Old Arms of Idaho (I have done business with them several times - they're safe.)

Numrich sold me a magazine/ trigger guard and a rear sight..
Now I'm gonna drop it in a cheap Microfit, and get to shooting this little jewel..
Also I ordered the milled one, and yes I realized it's supposed to be stamped but I like the milled magazines better..

The saga continues, I received the magazine and rear site, however the magazine was stripped, and I'm still looking for a floor plate..

Can you post a photo of the bottom metal, showing which type of floor plate is needed?
There were several different styles.
