    I have a 7mm Spanish Mauser that I've had for many years and I think Samco Arms in Miami can get you a replacement stock for your 1916 Spanish Mauser. A few years ago they had them for $50 or $60 as I recall. You can go to their website and use the "Contact Us" feature to make an inquiry. They will have original stocks for them, but if by Mannlicher you mean a full length stock that goes out to the end of the barrel, I doubt they'll be able to help you since I've never heard of such a stock existing for the old Spanish Mausers.

    This is what the old Mauser stocks looked like when the guns came out from the arsenal in Oviedo:

    The Spanish short rifles are handy little carbines, I have two. Both are set up in original trim. A Mannlicher stock will be a pricey custom endeavor. The stock will cost at least 2x the price of the rifle.

    Just put an original stock on it and enjoy.

    I think Samco global Arms in Miami can probably get you one. Here's a link:

    Use the "Contact SGA" feature to send them inquiry. They had stocks with metal hardware for about $60 a few years back.
