British L1A4 Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 272 - BAYO 272
This is the L1A4 variant of the L1 series of bayonets. The L1A1 was adopted on the 1/3/57 quickly followed by the L1A3 ( the L1A2 was only issue in Australia)l the L1A4 pattern was sealed on 31/12/1958 but was not produced until the 1970s. The only difference is that the pommel was riveted to the tang instead of being brazed or heat shrunk like the L1A1 and L1A3 and was an alternative method for manufacturers. The main producer of the L1A4 bayonets was Hopkinsons of Sheffield and our example carries the makers logo of an ‘H’ within a diamond and 73 denoting manufacture of 1973 on the ricasso. The grips have been over painted obliterating any marks except for a D and bread arrow denoting Enfield. See Skkennerton item B324 on pages 262, 263 and 268. As the new L1A3 bayonet was introduced in 1984, the L1A4 bayonet was ws only in production for a short while and therefore are not common. This price includes UK delivery. Sn. BAYO 272

British Trials Z2E1 Bayonet With Shortened Blade, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 265 - BAYO 265
This is one of the Z2E1 trials bayonets that has had the blade reground making it 10mm shorter than the normal length. Skennerton shows one as item B 318 and states that although there are some claims that these were a shorter version, it is more likely that some suffered damage to the points and at a later stage were reground to make them saleable on the commercial market. All other features remain the same as the standard bayonet. This bayonet carries the X2E1 designation stamped underneath the tang along with a serial number 7290. The catch on the pommel is the larger version and the steel scabbard is correctly marked to the mouthpiece with X1E1. See Skennerton item B318 on Pages 256 and 257.
