I have yet to learn how to upload pictures here so hereís my best description. Receiver is marked ďFabrique Nationale Herstal-LiegeĒ no other markings besides the serial number. Curved bolt handle, sights are reminiscent of the Yugo M24. 7MM Mauser caliber. Sporterized stock, rifle is about carbine length. Anddd go.

You've heard the old saying "One Aw S**t wipes out a thousand Attaboys"?

Well, "sporterized" wipes out collector interest and most of the resale value of a military surplus rifle.

When I say sporterized Iím using that term lightly. Itís not the original stock. No other alterations have been made. It would take a new stock to get it back to the orginal look. For $95 dollars Iím looking at buying it just as a project to get it back to original mil surp look.

Make sure you measure the length of the receiver. Before buying a replacement stock. FN made two lengths. The 1924's were a intermediate length, 8.5" long. The later FN models, were a 1/4 inch longer.

After some more digging I more than 90% sure that the rifle is a Uruguayan FN 1893. Only thing Iím wondering now is about a stock. Think I can get the stock off of a Spanish version to make it fit this model? What about the stock from a Yugo M24?

An 1893 is a small ring action, I am pretty sure an M24 is large.

If indeed a Uru 93, any small ring stock should fit/function.
Carse is correct: the M24 is large ring, but an intermediate length action (requires the proper stock).
Be advised that a couple models of Spanish Mausers sported small rings, so there's hope.

According to "Mauser Military Rifles of the World". There is no such thing as a Uruguayan Model 1893. There is a 1895, but it has no receiver markings.

The chamber marking on the receiver, "Fabrique Nationale" over "Herstal Liege". Is the FN commercial address crest.

To get the right stock, you would first have to figure out what model Mauser it is. Description of bolt and serial, number might help in this matter. The early 7 mm Mausers that went to Spain and South America, were different then the latter ones, in this regard.
