First Pattern French Lebel M 1886 White Metal Hilt Bayonet With Down Swept Hook Quillon, Scabbard and Brown Leather Frog. Bayo 277 - Bayo 277
This is a superb Lebel 1st Pattern bayonet with white metal hilt, round button catch and down swept quillon. It is an early model without the ability to remove the hilt by unscrewing the small nut set into the top of the pommel.

The down swept quillon carries the number "52034" and two inspection stamps. The scabbard is black steel and completely dent free and undamaged. The frog is the standard leather frog and is in as good as it comes and being the 1st pattern, is a must for Lebel collectors. (see White & Watts No 205, page 85 & 96).

Italian BM59 Bayonet, Scabbard and Integral Webbing Frog. Bayo 274 - Bayo 274

It has brown ringed plastic grips secured by 2 screw bolts. The pommel is the standard M4 pincer type. The bayonet is unmarked. The scabbard is the standard American green pattern with an integral frog but again completely unmarked. (See White & Watts No 452, page 191 & 201). The price includes UK delivery. Bayo 274

Italian Alpine Troops M1891 Carcano Truppi Speciali Bayonet, Scabbard and Green leather Frog. Sn 12913 - 12913
This is a scarce and unusual bayonet which was issued with the 1891 Carcano carbine to special troops. These were troops such as Alpine Troops, Artillery and engineers who needed their hands free but the short carbine could be slung over their backs for quick use if needed. The bayonet differed from the standard M1891 bayonet in having a lateral mortise slot and a press catch on the pommel end. The blade is 11.5" in length and fullered on both sides. The crossguard and pommel are blued steel and the grips are wood, secured by 2 rivets. The scabbard is fluted leather with brass top and bottom mounts. The frog is the correct green leather frog. It is in very good condition and all of the stitching is present and secure. These bayonets were only issued in small numbers and are correspondingly quite scarce. This example is in beautiful condition. (see White & Watts, item 433, page 189-195). The price includes UK delivery. Sn 12913
