    A 24/47 is not a Small Ring Mauser. But the action screws are the same spacing as most Small Ring mausers. Some Small ring stocks can be inletted for the Yugos, but most are too narrow for the larger receiver ring.

    @ Davidheart My dad raised me saying. "If you don't know how to do something then Learn If someone else can do it, then so can you." You just have to weigh out if the final product is worth your time and investment.

    @ White Eagle. If you are going to use the PC boolits for hunting then remember they are Toxic to animals. Not from the powdercoating, but from that big hole they leave in the animal. Good luck on your hunt.
