    Not sure if this is the right area for this or not but any who I was wondering if someone could tell me if changing out all the furniture from my old czec verzion 24 8mm mauser rifle would require any kind of gun smithing know how. I would really like a different look for it. What im thinking might be a problem is something like headspacing?? Or anything. Im complete uneducated in these ways =D
    Thank you for your time!

    I can't for the life of me see what furniture would have to do with headspace.

    The head space was just an example of something that could be a problem. I have no idea about these things =D

    As far as what it sounds like you want to do, the work is pretty straight forward. Pull out action, put in new stock, brag you're a gunsmith. Make sure the stock you buy is already inletted (wood/plastic carved out to accept action), unless you want to show off your mad wood carving skills. I would highly recommend you get a copy of the book "Gunsmithing Made Easy" by Bryce Towsley. It steps you through a lot of gun "pimpin'" projects. Don't be intimidated by the fact that it's a gun. It's just a collection of parts like anything else. If you can fry a hamburger you should have the intelligence to handle doing cosmetic work.

    When you say action does that mean the bolt the barrel the trigger and all of the other metal pieces associated with a ww2 rifle?

    ATI sells a synthetic stock and scope mount for large ring mausers like yours. It is a drop in and bolt on type kit, with simple instructions. Very easy swap. Last that I knew Cabela's carries them, and most army\navy surplus stores do as well.

    P.S. Save the old military parts. Someone else may need them for a restore, or you can put the weapon back to original if you decide to sell it.

    The ati stock in question is garbage. I own it on a large ring Turk mauser. I wish I had never bought it. Looks great yet the scope mount works lose and hole no zero. This is the two piece stock that looks like a steyr scout. I went ahead and shortened my barrel and had a new target crown put on it(Do NOT attempt to do this yourself). Check boyds stocks .com

    Good way to go with a Mauser is a Houge over molded

    +1 Sarge. Lessdragon.. Not wanting to appear judgemental either but it appears that your firearms knowledge is very limited. You must crawl before you can walk and walk before you can run.. Check out the reading material Sarge posted for you before tackling your "furniture" project..
