What else do you expect me to do?
Take it to a gunsmith for an inspection by a knowledgable expert on what is and isn't safet to shoot.

TheHighRoad exists to provide a higher grade of discussion than is found on some other gun forums so antis and undecideds can see that gun owners and RKBA advocates are not the reckless misanthropes they tell everyone we are. Personal attacks, group stereotyping, macho chest-thumping, and partisan hackery are low road and hurt all of us.

Where do you find these knowledgeable expert gunsmiths to inspect and approve your second hand guns? We don't have them, checking out a surplus or other used gun is left as an exercise for the student. But they sure seem common on the internet.
I have a few facts and a lot of opinions.

I meet the real expert gunsmiths at the National Matches, or big Regionals. If they are not at my end of the line, I ask the good shooters around me, "who built your rifle?", and that will provide me enough information to find the gunsmith.

None of the ones I found are within eight hours driving distance. They are real scarce.
Accuracy is a skill acquired through constant practice.

We have a local Gander Mtn. the "gunsmith" there, I wouldn't trust him to push a patch down the barrel let alone check out a gun!

The gunsmiths at the National Matches are likely very expert when it comes to building and working on rifles for those matches, but I have to wonder if they would be qualified to assess old surplus Mausers.

Spanish Mauser

You could always get one of the Rhinelander conversion kits and make a .45 ACP out of it. Pressures would be a lot lower with the pistol round.
