British 1960 Dated L1A3 Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 321. - BAYO 321
The L1A3 bayonet was introduced into British service during the late 1950s to eliminate the protruding press stud used on the L1A1 and L1A2 designs. It was felt that the protruding press stud made the bayonet too easily dislodged, so the press stud was made flush with the pommel. This is a nice 1960 dated example complete with its No5 MkII scabbard with brass mouthpiece. The steel blade is near perfect, the grips pommel and finger guard are showing minor signs of service wear. The bayonet is in good condition with only a small mark to the rear as shown in the photos. See Skennerton, item B322, pages 260-262. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 321. (Box 1)
