I picked this bayonet up for $10, but I can't figure out what it is. I know you guys will know. The scabbard looks American. It appears unissued, and the wood sheath was never painted. There are no marks whatsoever on the bayonet or scabbard. Thanks

It is a German manufactured G3 bayonet, probably made by Eickhorn. The scabbard is not unpainted; they made plastic (or fiberglass) scabbards with a brown woodgrain finish. Definitely not Pakistani, they have a bowie tip and a different grip. Not Iranian, different grip and the Iranian has a much longer blade.

Thanks guys. Even though it wouldn't be "correct", would this work on a Cetme rifle kit that I have yet to build? I think I read somewhere that the bayo lug can be changed out for the G3 part. True, or?? If so, any ideas on where to find the correct part?
