British L1A3 Bayonet, With Straight Cross Guard, Short Fullers & Scabbard. Bayo 112 - Bayo 112
A British L1A3 bayonet with straight cross guard, short fullers and scabbard made in Enfield in 1967. During the mid 1960's it was found that the long blade fuller which extended almost to the crossguard, resulted in a weakness in the blade and made the tempering process difficult. As a result, the length of the fuller was reduced to about 4.2 inches, terminating about 1.4inches forward of the crossguard. As a result the blade is heavier, without tapering in thickness towards the point. On later models the crossguard is not waisted but straight. This bayonet has a straight cross guard and short fuller. The bayonet has a blackened pommel with recessed release stud. The grips are blackened steel and are both stamped with "L1A3 9600257 D67" indicating it was made at Enfield in 1967. They are secured with two recessed steel rivets. The polished steel blade has a short fuller with single edge. It measures 8" long, 12" overall. The ricasso is stamped with "D 67". The scabbard is blackened and in excellent undamaged condition. (see page 261, last paragraph in Skennerton's British & Commonwealth Bayonet Book). The price includes Uk delivery. Bayo 112

In 1902 Experimental Long and Short bayonets were trialled to succeed the 1888 pattern Bayonets.
