American U.S. M5-1 Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 301 - BAYO 301
This is an American M5-1 bayonet made by Aerial. This bayonet has the improved locking catch which was necessary due to the difficult in operating the original catch. The bayonet is marked on the crossguard U.S.M5-1 and AERIAL together with the U.S. government Department of Defence acceptance mark consisting of a stylised eagle surmounted by 3 stars. This replaced the old flaming grenade and was in use between 1955 to the mid-1960s. The bayonet is contained in its correct U.S. M8A1 scabbard made by P.W.H. and its green cloth frog.

French M1886 Lebel White Metal Handled Bayonet With Hook Quillon And Scabbard. BAYO 298 - BAYO 298
This is an early M1886 1st pattern Lebel bayonet with a white metal hilt, quillon and a round press stud. These press studs were changed to a flatter oval style in 1893. In 1915 it was decreed that all future M1886 bayonets were to be made without the quillon. Some earlier bayonets were also retrospectively modified by having the quillon removed. This bayonet retains its original hooked quillon. The bayonet has an unusual cruciform blade which was prone to breaking so the final modification place took place in 1935 when the blades were shortened to 335mm. This bayonet has the original 520mm length blade which is complete and undamaged. The bayonet is numbered 65538 and carries the number 2X184 in the socket and 77 6 H at the top of the scabbard. The bayonet is contained in its original blued tapered metal scabbard. See Martin J. Brayley, An Illustrated History of Bayonets, Pages 71 – 74. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 298

The crossguard carries the number 11719 and scabbard throat carries the number 10139. The bayonet is held in place by a press stud locking device which also operates the locking device for the rifle. The grips are of plane wood held by one screw which also acts as a pivot for the locking catch. The blade is single edged for most of its length apart for a short ½” length at the tip. The steel scabbard retains some of its original black finish. These bayonets were still in use in 1940 when Norway was overrun by the Germans and were used by German second line and security troops during the occupation. See Martin J.

SOLD SOLD (06/02) U.S.Rare M6 Bayonet and M8A1 Scabbard BAYO 295 - BAYO 295
This is the scarce M6 bayonet, being the rarest of the M4 - M7 range of bayonets. The bayonet was used on the M14 rifle when it was introduced in 1957 due to the commitment to NATO and the standard 7.62 NATO cartridge. The rifle used the standard Garand action but had a flash eliminator and therefore could not use the M5 bayonet as this fitted the gas plug on the end of the Garand. The M6 bayonet has a conventional muzzle ring to fit over the flash eliminator. The bayonet was only produced for 6 years from 1957 to 1963 being replaced by the M16 rifle and M7 bayonet making this a scarce bayonet. The bayonet is marked on the crossguard with U.S. M6 and IMPERIAL (the manufacturer). The scabbard is stamped U.S.M8A1 VIZ (Viz Manufacturing Company). See An Illustrated History of Bayonets by Martin J. Brayley, Page 234. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 295

Italian M1870/87/15 Vetterli Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 290 - BAYO 290
This is the final version of the M1870 Vetterli bayonet which has had the original 20.375 inch blade officially shortened to 9.125inches and had the quillon removed. On entering WW1, Italy found itself seriously short of arms and many of the old Vetterli rifles had their 10.5mm barrels inner sleeved to take the 6.5mm Carcano cartridge. The original bayonets were shortened in order to conform approximately to the Carcano 6.5mm rifle with its bayonets fixed. This bayonet has the 9.125 inch blade with the fuller running to the tip. The crossguard has ZW8763 and C.N. in an oval stamped on it. The pommel is all steel and is fixed to the blade by a nut on the top. The grip plates are of composite material and the leaf spring is the 1st pattern long version. Later models had a much shorter leaf spring. The scabbard is brass mounted leather and is fitted with a standard Italian leather frog. See The Bayonet Book by White and Watts, item 437 on pages 190 and 197. The price includes U.K. delivery.
