    Picked up this bayonet yesterday and curious about the production date. Any ideas? Thanks!
  2. Militaria-Swords-Bayonets- Edged Weapons Forum
    Hello, I'm a bit new to the bayonet collecting hobby and recently picked this M1898/05 bayonet up in an online auction. I just got it and am a little confused about the identification marks on the blade, or the lack thereof. I looked it all over and have not been able to find many marks on it...

    A friend of mine recently got this bayonet at an estate sale. We were wondering what it's value may be, and something about it's origin. Also, where would something like this sell best?
  4. Mannlicher, Steyr & Blackpowder Cartridge Rifles
    My family has had a Dutch M95 Carbine for a while and I've wanted to identify it and buy a bayonet for it. It is marked "KAV" and so I suspect its a Calvary Carbine. Looking at A Quick and Dirty Guide: Dutch Mannlichers – Surplused it seems to be a KNIL one that had its left side sling loop...
  5. Militaria-Swords-Bayonets- Edged Weapons Forum
    I recently picked this up from a friend because it's the cleanest Ross bayonet I've ever seen. Research is telling me that it's a Mk. 1 trials bayonet though I'd like to hear from more experienced collectors. The frog reads 5th PNRS which I assume refers to the 5th Pioneers which briefly existed...

    I picked up a Remington 1903A3 a few months ago, made in 9 of 43. I am wanting to get a Bayonet to add to the collection and was wondering which would have been correct. Would it be the M1905 full size or the M1 - M1905E1? Would Remington be paired up with a certain Manufacturer? Another...
  7. Firearms Of The Rising Sun
    Who knows how much money the Military wasted coming up with the design for the Korean Rework Scabbards, Some GI Did the exact same thing for free! In all seriousness, I happened to find this bayonet a little while ago, the m1910 Web belt hook really caught my eye, along with an (admittedly rock...

    This is marked C7 Nella on the guard and dates back to only the 80s. I see Hero Outdoors sell this for $200 . Is this not very recent therefore common? American versions are very common at least.
  9. French Firearms Board
    I realise that this is not the "Edged Weapons Forum", but 1886Lebel does not frequent that forum whereas he does frequent this one. Does anyone have the specifications for the elemental composition of the steel used for French bayonet blades-- Berthier; Chassepot; Gras; Lebel? Regards, JMB

    Does anyone know the original elemental composition that was specified for the steel of the Patt. 1907 bayonet? The Textbook of Small Arms (1929) gives values for Carbon, Silicon, Manganese, Phosphorus and Sulphur but I wonder if there are some errors. Would like to confirm the values from a...
  11. The Lee-Enfield Forum
    I just came across this 1907 pattern bayonet and am now doing the provenance research. I have gathered: EFD = Manufactured at RSAF Enfield. '11' on the ricasso = November issue '0' on the right of the '11' = a year ending in 0, so 1920, 19130 or 1940. Someone else pointed out the oil hole was...
  12. Perkun information needed

    I have a perkun bayonet I have been looking for information on the markings and trying find out any information that I can.
  13. Militaria-Swords-Bayonets- Edged Weapons Forum
    Hello. I have come into possession of an old type 30 bayonet. I am looking to identify the time period it was manufactured. Serial number: 1012070 (edit) 12070 I stand corrected, originally what I took for a 10 is actually an additional identification marking. though i cant seem to locate any...
  14. Militaria-Swords-Bayonets- Edged Weapons Forum
    Hello, I was wondering if anybody had more specific information on this, as I have not had any luck finding it. This bayonet has close resemblance to the French 1842 yataghan bayonet, but is totally devoid of any French markings (as far as I see), and has several that I'm not familiar...
  15. The Military Mauser Forum
    What is the historically correct frog for this bayonet? I bought the bayonet with the scabbard, but no frog. I've seen E-Bay listings for M1941s with canvas frogs, but I also see leather frogs used by Germany or Yugoslavia. The only stand-alone frogs I have seen so far are repros, would I be...
