Good idea- poorly designed

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 27, 2014
Excited when I received this product to be able to easily mount a scope to my MAuser. No problems with assembly.
The problem came with the magazine follower. In the Mauser stock, the follower is bottom attached which gives it stability. In the ATI stock, you just insert it and it is free-floating with no vertical stability. I tested many times with ammo and it caused jams, with the rounds getting under the follower. The design for placement of the follower was just not well thought-out. I am tactical-minded with all of my weapons and I just cannot live with a jamming issue. I returned the stock. ATI needs to design a removable bottom plate that can anchor the magazine spring.
Pros: Modernizes Mauser platform
Cons: Malfunctioning magazine...
Would recommend: No

Read Before You Buy. Risky...

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on July 3, 2011
Read the reviews from various other online retailers on this stock. Common thread was installation was either very easy, or you would need to use a Dremel to make some adjustments. I have a 1944 German Mauser 98k (manufactured by Mercedes Benz), all original parts. Went to do the install and it just does not fit. Made adjustments using a file, and no go. I can't get the top cover to go over the barrel. I ended up having to take the rifle to a gunsmith lest I totally ruin the stock (and possibly my rifle). Gunsmith even noted that the recoil lug that came with the stock is not substantial enough to handle the massive recoil from the 8mm round. He will need to reinforce it. Again, 50/50 on the install. Remember that there are over 100 variants of the 98k, so yours may or may not work. Buy at your own risk.
Pros: Modern Look
Cons: 50/50 on the installation (read on)...
Would recommend: Yes
