Belgium Model 1924 Short Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 589 - BAYO 589
This is a Belgium Model 1924 short bayonet made to fit the Belgian FN24, FN30 and the Czech VZ24 rifles. There are no markings on the bayonet except for a serial number 28560 stamped to the end of the pommel. The scabbard has been painted green early in its life. These bayonets were made to compete in the international arms market during the 1920s and 1930s, especially against the Czechoslovakian producer Brno who made a virtually identical bayonet called the VZ 24. This bayonet was also copied by Yugoslavia where it was also designated the 1924. See Martin J. Brayley, An Illustrated History of Bayonets on pages 35 – 37. This bayonet is less common than the Czech version. U.K delivery is included in the price. BAYO 589 £125

Belgium Unusual Conversion Of A Belgian Albini-Braendlin Socket Bayonet. BAYO 587 - BAYO 587
This is an unusual conversion of a Belgian socket bayonet. The socket has had a long groove cut into the top of the socket. Possibly for raised sights. The locking ring has a spade type screw fixing for hand tightening. The blade is 17 ½” long. The socket measures 3” long with a muzzle ring diameter of 24mm. The leather scabbard is of the type used for the Albini-Braendlin socket bayonet and this bayonet fits the scabbard perfectly. There is a number 4?807 stamped into it. This bayonet is worthy of further research. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 587

Canadian WW1 Ross Mk II Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 586 - BAYO 586

Contemporary Indian Baker Sword Bayonet. BAYO 544 - BAYO 544
This is a Baker pattern sword bayonet, made in India for use by Indian troops and State forces where it was also used by bodyguard and parade troops. The bayonet is unmarked except for Indian script on the top of the hilt which was a common practice with these bayonets. The blade measures 565mm long with an overall length of 680mm. Skennerton shows a virtually identical bayonet in his book on pages 318 and 319, item 110. This is not a modern replica but a contemporary Indian issue. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 544

Norwegian M1894 Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 326 - BAYO 326
This is a Norwegian M1894 short bayonet for the Norwegian 1894 Krag Jorgensen rifle. These bayonets were made at the Konesberg Arsenal in Norway or at the OEWG Arsenal in Austria. This is a Norwegian produced bayonet and carries a crowned K marking on the blade together with inspection stamps and a controllers inistials on the other. The crossguard carries the number 106144 which is repeated on the scabbard throat. It is unusual to find these bayonets with matching numbers as most have been re-married when in for re-furbishment etc. The bayonet is held in place by a press stud locking device which also operates the locking device for the rifle. The grips are of plane wood held by one screw which also acts as a pivot for the locking catch. The blade is single edged for most of its length apart for a short ½” length at the tip. The steel scabbard retains most of its original black finish. These bayonets were still in use in 1940 when Norway was overrun by the Germans and were used by German second line and security troops during the occupation. See Martin J. Brayley, An Illustrated History of Bayonets item 526 on pages 229 and 235. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 326

Australian Korean War Period (1952 Dated) Mark 1 Owen Machine Gun Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 518 - BAYO 518

The blade carries a broad arrow over ’52 and an O over a broad arrow and I on the other side with X MA on the other. (MA is the Lithgow mark).

WW2 India Pattern No1 MkIII* Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 513 - BAYO 513
This is a nice and crisply marked No1 MkIII* India pattern bayonet. The blade carries the crown over GRI and MKII over 13 44 (December 1944 date) and R.F.I.. This bayonet was therefore made at the Rifle Factory Ishapore in December 1944. The bayonet has the squared pommel and parallel tang and grips which was a feature of these later bayonets, done in order to; save on machining time. The bayonet has an 11.9 inch blade with a false edge to the tip and carried several inspectors stamps. Many of these bayonets are marked on the blade as MK II when in fact the official designation was No 1 MK III*. The bayonet is contained in its original long No1 MKI scabbard with a tear drop frog stud. The frog is a P ’37 webbing version. See Skennerton item 156 on pages 346 – 356, in particular his comments of page 350 for items 155 and 156. This is a nice India pattern variation bayonet. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 513

India Pattern Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 512 - BAYO 512
This is an Indian conversion of an original pattern 1907 bayonet by shortening the blade and giving it a false edge at the tip. The fuller runs through to the tip and many of these were converted during the war before the later un-fullered blade versions were introduced. Skennerton shows a similar one as item 152 on page 348. However, many were converted in the 1950s and this is likely to be one of these as the false edge has more of a pronounced bowie shape. There are feint markings on the blade but all the metal parts have been polished or chromed, possibly for parade use. The scabbard is a shortened P 1907 version and the frog is a Pattern ’37 webbing one which is dated 1942. This is an interesting variation for the India pattern bayonet collector. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 512

Yugoslavia M1924 Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 271 - BAYO 271
This is a nice 1924 pattern bayonet made to fit the Belgian FN24 an FN30 and the Czech VZ24 rifles which the Yugoslav army was using at that time. The Kragujenac Arsenal also made the FN24 rifle and bayonet under licence. This is a Yugoslav made bayonet as it has the distinctive grip bolt head used by the Yugoslavians which requires a special bifurcated tool to remove them. The blade is heavily blued as is the pommel. The crossguard carries the number 4329 and an indistinct mark. The scabbard is all steel and the frog stud carries the number 36100. See An Illustrated History of Bayonets by Martin J. Brayley, page 252. This is an uncommon bayonet in very good condition. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 271

SCARCE, Portuguese Model 1885 Guedes (Kropatschek) Bayonet & Scabbard. Sn 17201:2 - 17201:2
This is a Model 1885 Guedes bayonet, often referred to as the Kropatschek bayonet & is based on the Austrian M1873 bayonet. These bayonets are not common in the collector's market. These bayonets were originally intended for the Guedes-Castro rifle but when Portugal decided to adopt the 8mm Kropatschek bolt action rifle, the bayonet was used instead of the new rifle (see Brayley 'An Illustrated History Of Bayonets' pages 182 & 183). The fullered blade is 18 ½” length and measures 23 ½” overall. The blade has just staining consistent with age. There is a small inspection mark on the blade and ‘GG291’ on the cross guard which has the correct muzzle ring. Its slab wood grips are secure and have just bumps and bruises to be expected. The steel pommel has the correct bayonet release button which functions correctly. The steel scabbard has a frog bar & ball end. Sn 17201:2
