It would be easier to buy the correct stock

I went ahead and shaved off more , worked out i think.

it needed to rotate quite a bit more. its not picking up the paint.

Lol, a Mauser store. I really do live in the worst part of the state it seems. Interesting how shiny that bolt is for being German...
That bolt hes been reforged and customized for accuarcy (bolt face and truing he did a ton of stuff)

The while thing was like chrome when I got I back . I need to reblue the back and handle the first round didn't turn out right.

Oh ya there's no Mauser store I was using sarcasm for that [email protected]!! Jerk. Click his name and look at "other posts by" all 30 something of his posts are either unhelpful quips or about himself

Ah, I see. I'm about 10 minutes from heading home, and then I'll take a look at my bolt. Then you'll know if you're ready to get rid of that shiny garbage that would never be seen on a German battlefield GI7

Its actually a yugo which are used for Color guard type use and typically have highly polished. Bolt and rings

I've attached pictures of similar angles to yours. I don't see much difference in positioning except MAYBE the extractor collar is seated a milimeter or so further into the chamber (which could admittedly be a big deal). That's from your first picture though

Look at the rifle, not the gun...

EDIT: Okay yeah mine's definitely seated further into the chamber. But that's still judging from the first picture.

ya my first pic was an explosion waiting to happen . its all closed up now, just had to take quite a bit off the stock.

if your bored and don't mind at some point can you pull the handle back and show me a shot of the stock cutout?

By the look son the crest it seems that it is a Yugo maybe an M48
Its a Yugo m24/47

with a reforged/ trued bolt (thats why it looks like the m48)

Went ahead and got several angles without the bolt. Enjoy

I'll admit I don't hang around Yugos much because every one I've seen is a Mitchell-rape. Not to come off as snooty or anything. I did notice the crest and wasn't sure about origin, but off the top of my head the only Mausers without straight bolts I could think of were Germans... again because I don't hang around Yugos much :p. I shoot plenty of Yugo ammo though...

interesting the Yugo stock is a lot beefier around the rear ring. I had to cut deep and yours doesn't even have a cutout just a really slick looking contour.

If it was me I would take the stock off and see what the lock up was like without it on to make sure the bolt if fully rotated clockwise.
thats the first thing i did that let me know i needed to cut the stock.

then i used the paint method to get it where its not touching.
