The good thing is I found a nice Mauser G33/40 with its original stock for a good price. The bad thing is The bolt isn't a 33/40 bolt it's a standard K98K bolt. So now my quest is for a G 33/40 bolt. Probably like looking for a needle in a hay stack.

I think it may be easier to find a bolt than you think.
I've had a few pass through my hands in the last two years, sold them on e-pay....
Of course, that circus has left town, so you need to network with other collectors, which it turns out, is the BEST way to procede anyway!

Chasdev, I can hardly believe it. I have been looking for 5 years! Where do you find these? On the rare occasion I found one on ebay it quickly climbed to ridiculous amounts- I saw one go for $500 for just the stripped bolt body! That's almost the value of a mismatched 33/40 with improper bolt! And every time I posted on the trader, no responses. So if you get another in, you have two ready buyers...

Actually they haven't gone as far afield as many believe. I don't know where they draw the line, but not long ago I looked and there were many bolts offered along with bayos and numerous other evil gun parts.

Sorry but I wasn't looking for the bolt in question so didn't notice. So don't totally pass up on epain as a gun part source.

I hate to be dumb, but what does the bolt look like. I have a friend with a box of bolts he got from an old gunsmith that died 20 yrs ago.
I will look thru the box, though I know a few have had the handles cut off.
