I picked up another $20 bayonet at the swap meet today and need help with the ID. I've looked through my bayonet books and can't seem to find it. The only markings are the Simpson & Co Suhl on the right side of the ricasso and a ser# on the right side of the pommel. The blade is 11" and darkly blued. It has a tall muzzle ring.
Any ideas?

It looks like a Chilean 1895 without the Chilean markings, did Simpson & Co make bayonets for Chile?
I don't collect South American guns, only bayonets, so I don't have a rifle to try it on.

You're right, It fits an M1895 better than the M1895 bayonet I got for $20 in the same deal. I also picked up an unissued Enfield #9 bayonet, coated with plastic, in the wraper, for $10 from the same guy.
