I have a question maybe one of the experts here can help me. Will the bolt from a german mauser fit and work in a mauser made by the manchurian state arsenal. The barrel and receiver look identicle to the standard k98 mauser. It even fits into the stock for a german mauser. I used a trigger group from a mauser in it and it fits as well. The receiver/barrel is chambered 7.92.

I guess no one has a German and Manchurian mauser to check? Why would you want to?

My question has been answered by a member of another forum. Why would i want to rather use it in the field than good mauser. Why take the chance of damageing a good mauser which are becomming more and more scarce??? but i thank everyone for their help

Good point. Is it just for a Blank fire or de-act or for a live firer? What was the answer? Not that I think I'll ever need to fit one myself but someone might.

i believe mauser bolts are interchangable BUT i wouldnt risk puting a live round through it as the head spacing could be wrong (as they were set up for each perticular gun with a certain bolt, though you mihgt be lucky and it could be the same) and if it is wrong you could end up blowing apart the gun or damaging something. it should be fine if your using it for blanks as there is no great preasure build up.

i believe Bren_man303 is right about the mauser bolts being interchangable ,i have a 1943 dated k98 and a 1953 model 42 spanish mauser both bolts are identical and fit either rifle ,but in saying that i have never risked it when live firing them.
