Italian BM59 Bayonet, Scabbard and Integral Webbing Frog. Bayo 274 - Bayo 274
This is a nice Italian bayonet which resembles an M4 but in fact fits the Beretta BM59 rifle. This was the Italian conversion of the M1 to the 7.62mm NATO FAL system. It carries a new crossguard with a 22mm muzzle ring but is not interchangeable with the similar M7 bayonet. The bayonet also fits the Beretta AR70 5.56 rifle. 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

This bayonet has a 22.8" Yataghan blade and a steel cross guard. The grip is brass and has a leaf spring held by a rivet. The cross guard carries the number "L15".

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

A French Mannlicher Berthier M1892 2nd Pattern bayonet and scabbard. This bayonet was made to be used with the Mannlicher Berthier Artillery Carbine and is a very nice design. This is the 2nd Pattern with wood grips and with the quillon partially removed. This was due to the bayonets serial number being on the lower part of the quillon. The bayonet has a straight sword like polished blade which measures 15 3/4" long. It is fullered, it has an unusual feature of a short fuller on the top edge of the blade near the tip which aided penetration. The blade has a notch on both sides near to the crossguard which locks the bayonet in the scabbard with a click. This is the later design with smooth wood grips secured with two rivets. The muzzle ring overlaps the grips and has a notch cut in at the rear which engaged at the rifles foresight. The quillon is stamped on one side with "30213". The ricasso is stamped on one side with inspection marks. The pommel has a push release which operates as it should.

This is the modified version of the M1842 with an internal coiled spring as opposed to the leaf spring used on the M1842.
