Don't think it can be done. First off the stock is to "thin" not enough meat where the magazine would go. Second id the bottom of the receiver helps align the magazine so that it is in the proper position and then you have the magazine retaining screw with the lug that captures the slot on the front of the magazine. And if you look at a small ringed mauser action the standard magazine comes up from the bottom and the back part of this magazine has to have a space milled out for it. And that brings us back to the wood on the bottom of the stock where the single stack magazine for the '91 mauser is. A lot of folks who shoot these rifles like them just the way they are as even though they have the 5 round single stack mag sticking out still find it easy to carry with the hand being just in front of the mag. I don't think you are going to gain anything useful by converting to the mauser type magazine box versus the 5 round single stack mag. This is not meant as a condemation of your project. It just serves as maybe why it shouldn't be done. Now having said all this watch out, someone will come online and say here is my conversion of a '91 mauser to a standard mauser type box magazine. I'm not saying it can't be done.
Just my 2 cents worth. Frank

you should be able to get the blind mag fitted and working. Hope this helps. My fingers are tired. Frank

These are both interesting ideas. And both worth serious thought. The blind mag is a great look, one that I was kinda thinking towards, but wasn't sure of the process. Thanks for the ideas! 58gscott

you can leave it this way or choose to round off the curve and thin the width of the trigger guard bow. I'd try and keep the width of the trigger guard bow slightly more than the width of the inletted section of the trigger guard unit. To get really crazy you could install steel or aluminium pillars and pillar bed the action. But since the origional trigger guard screws had a liner in the stock and if you don't remove them then pillar bedding becomes a moot point. Glass the recoil lug and receiver ring andmaybe the rear and underside of the tang. But that should be that. FRank

I didn't have anything against the 7.65 x 53, the action came without a barrel, and I had an unfired 7 mm barrel on hand looking for a receiver.
It became a sweet little carbine, magazine and all.
