Identifying Ring Size

Large Ring - Mauser's with a Large ring have a thread shank diameter of 1.10" With 12 threads per inch. Across the face of the receiver will measure 1 3/8 . You can also measure the trigger guard screw holes, From center hole to center of other hole should measure about 7 7/8 or 7.830.

Small Ring - Mausers with a Small ring have a thread shank diameter of .980" With 12 threads per inch. Across the face of the receiver will measure 1 1/4. You can also measure the trigger guard screw holes, From the center of the holes measure , it should measure about 7 5/8 or 7.625.

Large Rings Small Rings
Mauser 98, 48*, vz24,vz22 , Turks* , & Commercial Mausers etc.. Models 93, 94,95,96 & Mexican etc...
48* Large Ring but with an intermediate action see actions.
Turks * most are Threaded for the small ring barrel but have the standard length [ long ] action of a large ring Mauser 98.

Action Length

Here's where Mausers get confusing. There was several countries that manufactured various Mauser action rifles other than the large ring and long action. Some with Small Rings and long actions and some Large rings with Intermediate actions. The m48 and 48a [ yugo's ] have a large ring barrel but an intermediate action. The Turk Mausers [ most ] have a small ring barrel but a long action.

The Turks and m48's are nice rifles with great possibilities for sporterizing but there are more parts available for the standard Mauser 98 large ring and long action such as the k98 , vz24 etc.....

Check out Steve Wagners page for some great info on sporterizing Turk's and other how to's and great project ideas.
