hello, need to know if when they converted the brazilian 1908 mauser from 7mm to 30.06, then designating it the 08/34, did the spring and follower stay the same?  which is what i need to finish my 08/34. seems it would not have changed? also need the floorplate. anyone know where i can find these parts? thanks

    Mauser rifle book has a section on Brazil Mauser's. It's quite confusing, to say the least. Doesn't give a specific date for the conversions. 
    Both 30-06 and 7 mm Mauser rifles were marked "MOD 08/34" . The new ones in 30-06, were made in Brazil. Some of the ones from Czechoslovakia in 7 mm. After conversion to 30-06. had a. "30" added after the "MOD 08/34"..

    my books seems to say were made in 30.06 and not converted? (my correction). but would think that follower would remain the same seeing that i beleive both are long action cals? still need parts!

    That is one loaded question, what started with the 08, branched into many variants into the 1950's and other countries. I'll try and simplify what I know. The 30/06 rifles have three versions, 7mm barrel re-bored, new 06 barrel installed, and the last ones were built as a 30/06. Floorplate and follower springs are the same, and as far as I know, the follower is the same.
    As Rufe said, start researching the Brazilian, and you find "confusing" to be an understatement.
