Hey everyone. I'm new to Mausers but not new to gunsmithing. I recently acquire an M24/47 for free. The steel is in very rough shape deeply pitted below the stock line. I ordered a brand new M48 barrel from wideners. I plan on trying to grind the action out and the little bit of pitting where the bolt handle meets the bolt body.

My question being, if I can't grind the pitting out, what receivers may be interchangeable and where can I find them? Thanks

Sounds like my free horse that I now have several thousand invested in. The Yugoslav Model 1924's (FN or Kragujevac made) or the Yugo M48 and M48A receivers would be the right length for the stock and bolt. The VZ 24's are too long. If you buy a receiver or barreled receiver with a bad bore from an action site, or at a show, at least you can evaluate the under the woodline pitting.
