Recently someone gave me a very nice sporter stock that came off of a sporteized K98.
I have an old Yugo M48 mauser that is fairly beat up on the stock. I have been thinking about using the YUGO for a sporter project using the recently acquired stock, but I'm not sure if these rifles would be able to interchange stocks from a K98 to a M48.
Does anyone know what models of mausers would fit the same stock as a
I hear about "large ring and small ring" mausers.
Which ones are small ring and which are large?

Your bigger problem is the M48 is an intermediate length action, though as I recall the action screws are the same distance as a '98 in some- it might just be the 1903 Turkish, though. Ring diameter has to do with barrels.

I don't recall the exact measurement to thousanths, but a small ring is a little over 1.3" in dia at the reciever and the large ring is a bit more than 1.4". No help on the stock.allthebest

Ask the gun -- takle the M48 out of the stock and see what you would have to do to fit it into the '98 stock.

Go with a Boyds stock, they are great. If you have a M48/A/B then it will not fit a standard 98 stock. If you have a M48BO then it might since I think those were rebuilt off of captured German K98s with a full length action.
Here's my M48 in a Boyds stock, with handloads shooting off the bipod in the prone it shoots MOA or better. Forgive the metal finish, I still haven't decided between trying to duracoat it myself or have my gunsmith parkerize it.
