A '94 mauser question...

    I had a Brazilian Mauser (1894) that has been worked over hard by Bubba given to me. Bubba did a half decent blue job and rebarreled it with a sporter barrel, but the stock work(?) would make a wood butcher cry. I would like to put it in a synthetic stock, however, I am not finding any after market stuff specifically for this designation.

    Will a stock for a '96 Mauser fit? Can a stock for a '96 or '98 be modified to fit?

    Any help is appreciated,

    Except for the bolt, the Brazilian Model 1894 is identical to the Spanish Model 1893, so a stock for the latter should fit OK.

    Thanks for the tip.
    Any idea how the '93 / '94 compares with the '96?

    I can find all kinds of references for the '96 "small ring" Mauser, but nothing so far for the '94.

    Thanks again,

    There weren't many 94 mausers made. The Swedes had a bunch of very short barreled carbines made then started making their own slighly modified model 96. Metalurgy is different, the 96 being superior there, but workmanship of the Swedish 94 carbines is generally better, they were comercial orders, I think from Oberndorf.

    I've seen the similar mod 95 carbines rebarreled with cut down rifle barrels, sometimes the bores are off center .
    The original carbine barrels were under the legal limit of the day so surplus M94s found in the US seldom have the original barrel.

    The Brazilian Model 94 rifle and carbine is not quite the same thing as the Swedish Model 94, which is a carbine. A stock for a "small ring Mauser" should work for the Spanish Model 93 or the Brazilian Model 94. Some fitting may be required.

    I don't know of any Swedish carbines that were re-barrelled for importation. Those imported before the law was changed have a 1/2 inch extension welded onto the barrel to bring them over 18". The GCA '68 reduced the rifle barrel minimum to 16", so those imported after than needed no alteration. (The change was not made to accommodate importers of the Swedish carbine; it was made because the DCM had sold some M1 carbines with 17 7/8inch barrels. Rather than admit that the government made a mistake, Congress changed the law.)

    Thanks, guys!

    This what I needed to know. I think I have a chance to turn this Bubba-ed one into something functional and less offensive.
    Right now, it's pretty tough looking.

    Thanks again!
