i would like to get a proper bayonet for my AX 41, what dates and makers would be right for this rifle? thanks eastbank.
pzjgr is correct. The only related question I would have - is the subject AX41 either Luftwaffe (E/L) or Kriegsmarine (E/M) accepted? If it is than you would want to select a bayonet that fits within the date range pzjgr mentioned but if for Luftwaffe has an LBA marked frog or if for Kriegsmarine is Ost (O) or Nord (N) Sea group marked on the crossguard and scabbard and has an E/M marked frog.It doesn't really matter, there was no rhyme or reason to bayonet issue, and they weren't matched at the factory or anything, when you got to your unit, you were issued a rifle, you were issued a bayo.
About the only thing you may want to look for is a bayo dated 1941 or before....
