    Are the K98's the only mauser that have the bolt take down ring in the stock? I found a gun listed just as a mauser, not much else for description. It does have the ring though and if I could at least narrow it down to a few that have that... I think I'd be able to identify it.

    My GEW 98 has one, so not only K98, but some of their cousins do too.

    No. several other models have it also. The Gew98, and Turkish mausers come to mind, There are probably others, I only own a Turk, but know Gew 98's and K98's have them.

    Saying "a Mauser" is a lot like saying "a Ford", it covers a lot of models and many countries . . . .

    And, some Kar 98k's did not have the ring in the stock.

    (It was just a hole in the side of the butt-plate. And don't forget the Kar 98a's)

    Germany used the Stock disk on the Gew 98 and the K98 Mausers. But Mauser made rifles for many different countries. Some used the used the stock disk and others didn't.
    Mauser built 1893 and 1903 Mausers for Turkey with the stock disk. In the 30s Turkey updated a bunch of rifles to what is referred to as the M38 rifle. These rifles included the 1893, 1903, Gew 98 and K98AZ carbines.

    Around 1940 Turk started building there own rifles to the M38 standards. These are marked with the year of manufactur and the factory's stamp K.Kale. These rifles used new and refurbished parts. The stock disk was used on them too.

    The Czechs also used the stock disk on the 98/22 . These rifles were used by the Czechs and also sold to other countries .

    Late in WWII the Germans were trying to cut corners and had stopped using the stock disk and went to a simple hole drilled in the butt plate.
    During WWII the Czech factories were used to build K98 Mausers. After the war they used leftover k98 parts to build rifles to sale and boost their economy.

    Vz24 Mauser did not use a stock disk. Instead they used a divot on the left side of the recoil lug to assist with breaking down the bolt.

    Ok, it's like calling a Mosin a Nagant. A Mosin is a rifle and a Nagant is a revolver for those that don't know.
    It's called a stock dick, not a ring. Oh. As far as I know all Turkish Mauser had the stock disk.
