Threads should be the same as a CETME.

Try Springfield Sporters or perhaps SARCO for a stock.

I reckon any Spanish Large ring stock could be cut down but not sure where to get the handguard

Couldn't you just cut down a long rifle handguard? SW

There are no rear sights in front of the receiver ring like on a standard LR Spanish mauser
