*Very Scarce* L1A1 Bayonet and Scabbard Converted to L1A3 Specification. 20114. - 20114
This is a scarce conversion of an ‘L1A1’ bayonet which has retained the ‘L1A1’ grips, but has the ‘L1A3’ designation stamped to the top of the pommel. Most of the ‘L1A1’ bayonets were converted in 1958, which was a year after the original issue; this was due to the fact that the long press stud caused the bayonet to be easily removed from the rifle by rioters and confrontations with civilians. They mostly had new grips with the ‘L1A3’ designation fitted, but a few retained their original ‘L1A1’ grips and had the new designation ‘L1A3 0257’ stamped into the top of the pommel. The blade carries a ‘B58’ stamped to the ricasso. This example appears to have been chromed for parade use and is contained in its ‘No5 Mk1’ scabbard and white parade frog, which bears its previous assignees which gives a glimpse into its history. This is a scarce bayonet and a must for the serious British bayonet collector. See ‘Skennerton’ page 260 for further reference. The price includes UK delivery. 20114.

Scarce U.S. 1943 Dated M3 Bayonet By Camillus, Complete With Its M6 1943 Dated Scabbard By MILSCO. Sn - 20162
This is a superb and original American 1943 dated M3 bayonet with its original M6 scabbard. This M3 fighting knife was made by Camilus and is dated 1943 which is also marked on the blade. These blade marked knives were only made for approximately 6 months before the markings were moved to the crossguard. The stamped markings on the blade were thought to weaken the blades in service. The M3 bayonet is contained in its original M6 leather scabbard made by MILSCO and is also dated 1943. The bayonets pommel is stamped with the flaming grenade stamp. The bayonet has the usual leather washer grip which is tight with no movement. This bayonet is a nice complete and rare to find combination of a blade marked and dated M3 knife bayonet in its rare matching M6 leather scabbard. See M.H.Cole, U.S Military Knives.. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 20162

Early Type Pre 1858 British WD Army Sappers & Miners 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback Sword Bayonet & Scabbard. Sn 20119 - 20119
British Sappers and Miners Units adopted an oval barrel rifle in 1855 and produced their own distinctive bayonet with a Falchion or pipe backed blade. The leather scabbard had brass fittings. After 1857 the Sappers and Miners were renamed the Engineers so the blade is sometimes called the Engineers Bayonet. After removal from Engineer service they became a side arm particularly for the Medical Corps. Early examples had a leaf spring secured by a rivet but post 1858 the springs on these bayonets were secured by a screw. The British Government ordered quantities of these bayonets from German manufacturers & both the London and Birmingham trade (see pages 121-124 and item B160 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets By Skennerton). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet. It has a blackened 24” pipeback blade, brass cross guard with muzzle ring and brass pommel with correct flat steel spring bar with pre 1858 riveted flat spring and push button release which works as it should. The ricasso has WD and ‘Crown 22’ inspection marks. It's original chequered black grips have just light service wear and are correctly secured by rivets. There are no visible maker or Regiment marks on the bayonet. The bayonet measures 29 ¼” overall and is complete with its original leather scabbard with brass locket and brass chape. The leather is undamaged and all stitching intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 20119

SOLD SOLD (21/03) **MINT**1908 U.S Army Rock Island Arsenal (RIA) M1905 Bayonet & Early Pattern RIA 1909 Leather Covered Scabbard With T.C.C Factory Inspection Mark (RIA Factory Inspector Thomas C. Carrol). Sn 20104 - 20104
The M1905 bayonet was produced from 1906 to 1922 by Springfield Armoury and Rock Island Arsenal (RIA). The blade and handle frame were forged as a single piece with a wide, square-shaped fuller. The ribbed hand grips were made of walnut and attached to the handle with a screw. The screw also held the catch mechanism, manipulated with a button under the crossguard, that was used to fix the bayonet to the rifle's bayonet lug. In mid-1941, it was decided to restart production of the M1905 bayonet. To simplify production, these later bayonets had handles with black or dark red ribbed grips, made of phenol formaldehyde resin, the earliest type of synthetic plastic. Production was scheduled to begin in January 1942, but the first bayonets were not delivered until April, with quantity deliveries not beginning until the summer of 1942. Despite initial setbacks, the M1905 bayonet was manufactured in sufficient numbers to keep up with the widespread introduction of the new M1 Garand rifle in 1942. By the end of 1942, all six manufacturers had changed the shape of their fullers to a narrower, round-bottomed shape. The later version of the M1905 bayonet with plastic grips is sometimes referred to as the "M1942" by collectors and historians. This is a very scarce, near mint 1908 dated M1905 Bayonet made by ‘RIA’. The 45 cm long polished steel blade with fullers is stamped by the maker (RIA’ above Frankford arsenal ignited grenade mark and date 1908. The reverse has ‘US’ army acceptance mark and number ‘119167’ . The correct, excellent walnut grips are ribbed & correctly held by a single screw. The bayonet has the correct press button at the cross guard which releases the locking catch on the rifle and also holds the bayonet firmly in the scabbard. The scabbard in excellent order is the early pattern of heavy leather sewn over a wooden frame with brass rivets and this has a double hook arrangement used on all subsequent American bayonets. The brown leather is stamped stamped ‘R.I.A. 1909 (date) & T.C.C (RIA factory inspector Thomas C. Carrol’s mark). A real collector’s piece. The price includes U.K. delivery. Sn 20104

*Rare* British Trials Pattern FN FAL X2E1 Bayonet, X1E1 Scabbard Made In Belgium and Mills Equip. Co. Frog 1945 Dated. BAYO 192. - BAYO 192
A rare British trials pattern X2 E1 bayonet and scabbard. This is the Belgium F.N. bayonet and usually carries both the X2 E1 designation and a serial number matching the rifle. This is a shortened X2 E1 experimental bayonet which has a blade length 10mm shorter than the 201mm blade. There are claims that this was merely a shorter version of the 1st pattern but Skennerton states that it is more likely that the points were broken off and were re ground. The bayonet is for a NATO 7.62mm FAL Rifle in particular the X8E1, Type A 1953-61. The bayonet has the F.N. 'elastique' design pommel and catch and has two flash hider prongs, 1.6" long projecting forward of the muzzle ring. It measures 12 1/4" overall. It has dark wood smooth grips secured with screw bolts. It is stamped on the tang edge between the grips with 'X2 E1 9642' . The double edged blade is polished steel and measures 7 1/2" long.
