Santa Barbara actions were made in spain and imported here. Different companies would build them up and brand them.

It's a Mauser 98 action IIRC so most any place that makes synthetic stocks should have what you need. Sorry I can't be too specific at this time.

I used to work with a gun smith in Richardson Tx. He was the only one I knew of at the time who distributed the Sant Barbera barreled action. The invester who owned the inventory I never knew. I had several of the guns back in 1973, some I re barreled with Schillen barrels in 25/06, 6mm/06, 257 roberts. Anyway They all had Roberts stocks, the ones I did not put Schillen barels on were stamped Richard Texas and had Star barrels on them. I assume there were others who smithed the same barreled action but I cannot tel you where they were imported from and who the importer may have been.
Hope this helps!

I know this gun is not worth a whole lot!, it is a family gun purchased in 1938 16 GA. Pump with a adjustable choke. I have found out these guns were made by Mossberg, Ithica and I thing Savage, Well how do tell which manufacturer made wich gun?
Thanks.

I have a 98 Mauser with a synthetic stock and would like to put a wood stock on it. Not a cut down military stock, Post some pictures and maybe we can work something out.
