I am dropping it in a Hogue rubber stock and I have a high end Tasco scope that I am going to have tapped and mounted to it. Maybe a bipod too.

The M44 I will leave alone though.
If you are going to ruin a Mauser, you have to do it right - they are kind of hard to find these days, but back around 13 years ago when all the cheap Mausers (Russian/Czech/Yugo/Romanian capture, Turkish, VZ24, 98/29, etc.) were available, there were these really hideous looking (they looked like a giant turd) plastic dildo stocks with a huge and nasty looking "handguard" that had a scope rail built into it. These things really raised the bar for the description "butt ugly". I have a pristine, all original and matching, Vet bring-back DOT 1944 98k that I would love to drop in one of these wonderful stocks if I could find one.

If only the T53s actually lent themselves to refinishing. I have yet to see a T53 stock that isn't cracked and/or gouged to hell.
