I have a chance to get a gun in a trade.  The gun is a 25/06 with a mauser action and a  shilon barrel with a Richard Mizofit  thumb hole stock.  I don't like the look of the stock and I wonder if I can go with another stock  without alot of problems and modifiation.  Isaw a Sako stock I realy liked alot do you memmbers think I could use that stock/  Thanks for any input

Probably smarter to just pass on that one. Even if you went with a Boyds laminate which are fairly cheap it will still require some fitting.

Any stock you get will need to be checked and worked for proper fit.

Get a Mauser stock anywhere you like and it will be a pretty close fit as long as you measure the action screw distance. Nowdays, it is absolutely best to glass/pilar bed the action anyway and that is something you can easily do yourself. You can chisel/dremmel out the stock where necessary for the receiver, trigger and magazine but it will be close if not a dropin. Fiberglass barrel channels are easy to sand out with sandpaper on a dowel if necessary. Wood stocks are easier to expand if you get a barrel channel cutting tool.
 
The barrel channel will probably be fine though since you will want to free float the barrel. Usually, you just need to trim a little off the top of the barrel channel with sandpaper unless you have a bull barrel.

Not all mausers are equal.
If the Mauser is a FN Mauser (Fabrique National - commercial version of 98 wo thumb cut) with a professionally installed Shilen barrel that is in good shape and had a good trigger like a Timney and everything else is in good shape I would make an offer on it.
BUT a battered military 98 with an unknown history with things like a poorly welded bolt handle, deep pitting at the wood line, sloppy firing pin hole in bolt face, and a very early or late late manufacture I would avoid it. Proper heat treating is real important in Mausers. I am not a Mauser student but I have had experience with the VZ 24 types that appeared to be equal to the FN in workmanship.
 
Before you trade cock the rifle (unloaded), put it on safety, pull the trigger, release the trigger, then put it off safety. If it fires without pulling the trigger the cocking piece/sear contact needs to be adjusted and that could indicate sloppy smithing.
 
Also, not to bother with 96 types or older but it would be very unlikely that a .25-06 would be made from one of them.
 
There are many stocks available for 98/FN Mausers but some minor fitting or epoxy bedding might be required.
