Didn't get trashed at the hands of grand dad. I got it and few others out of rafters in barn.I get the sentiment. Yet if your GGF had cared much about it it would be in better and usable condition.
There are literally thousands of Mauser variations. No one knows them all.
The smiths who knew much about them are mostly gone. The few that remain are ultra expensive.
Worst of all is if you spend 1500 or 150,000 it will be worth about nothing when done.
This from a guy who has spent fortune on Mausers.
The handle is broke off. It's been sported already. Notch cut in stock so gonna say curved?? I've sent one bolt back to Numrich. Now I'm trying to find iron sights complete rear and complete front sights. Until bolt gets figured out by Numrich. Like to know if rifle can be converted to accept a clip with more rounds. Lots to do and figure out. Thanks everyone for tips and information.Most Venezuelan Mausers I've seen are 7x57mm. Does it have a straight or bent bolt handle?
If you can measure the inside diameter of the muzzle with a dial caliper, it should be .284" if it's a 7mm.
KS law says any center fire rifle. 5 is plenty for plain ole hunting. But may need this rifle for other reasons. I'm kinda just fishing around. The iron sights are next item to get. If bolt works out. I thought it took a strip. But not that far into it yet. Thanks for confirming my suspicions.I’m not sure if you mean you want a larger stripper clip or that you want to convert to magazine fed. You are aware that this Mauser if fed using five round stripper clips right? Once there’s five rounds in it, that’s probably the max your are allowed for hunting anyway, right?
Stripper clips hold the rounds to load the internal magazine like this:

You can get some stripper clips at numrich arms while you’re getting the correct bolt.

Venezuela purchased a bunch of vz.24 Mausers in the '30s along with FN Model 30s; correct me if I'm wrong, fellas, but doesn't the vz.24 have a slightly-shorter action than the Gew98/Kar98k? Or is that the FN Model 24? One of them is shorter than the standard Gew98 pattern action by about 1/4" IIRC. That could be why your replacement bolt doesn't fit right. Either way, your action would have been chambered for 7mm Mauser back in the Old Country before it made its way to your grandpappy. It is possible, with no guarantee and a mine's worth of salt, that it was not rechambered. It is also equally possible that it was rechambered, perhaps to .30-06 because America and the 7mm bolt face is serviceable with that cartridge. But there's really no telling without a chamber cast.
Now also, I might've missed what it was you wanna do with this rifle? If you wanna restore it to OG Venezuelan Army configuration... Uh well it's doable, sure, but you'd be better off just finding a surplus Kar98k or any number of Mausers out there. They can be found for reasonable-ish prices still. Your rebuild wouldn't be worth the effort and have little in the way of collector value if that's what you want. If you wanna make it a shootable Mauser sporter, that's still doable provided it's all in workable condition. But you'd also be better off finding a sporter you like better and leaving this one as it is. That said, if you're willing to put in the time and money on it, don't let us stop you. It's your rifle and your money and good luck to you. You could in theory do worse than making this a very basic .30-06 or 7mm Mauser sporter with simple-ish parts, synthetic stock, and whatever else.
