Brazilian ‘1908’ Pattern in Rare steel Mounted scabbard. BAYO 164 - BAYO 164
Unlike most of continental South America, Brazil had been under Portuguese rule, not Spanish, since the 1500’s. The 19th Century saw Brazil at war with Argentina and Paraguay, the latter conflict almost destroying Paraguay as a nation. Brazil joined the allies during both WWI &WWII. A new 7mm rifle and short rifle were adopted in 1908. These weapons had an attractive knife bayonet with hook quillon and a brass mounted leather scabbard. See page 38 of ‘An Illustrated History of Bayonets’ by Martin J.Brayley. It has wood slab grips secured with two steel rivets. The 30 cm blade is showing some surface rust. The pommel is steel and has a push button release which works as it should. It has no markings on the bayonet but was made by several German makers. The scarce steel mounted leather scabbards stitching is intact. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 164.

*Scarce* Canadian Ross Mk I Bayonet by Maker "Ross Rifle Co Quebec Patent 1907". With Leather Scabbard & Frog. 12914. - 12914
This is a scarce 1st Pattern Ross bayonet with the stepped back muzzle ring, a smaller muzzle ring diameter and a split annual spring inside the muzzle ring. This acts against the muzzle and ring to provide a rattle free and positive fit. This bayonet fitted the first pattern of Ross rifle but on the introduction of the MK II rifle the bayonet was altered with a larger muzzle ring diameter, no step back on the muzzle ring and the muzzle spring was deleted. This bayonet was made in August 1910 and is so marked on the pommel with the Canadian acceptance mark, inspection stamp and "*-10". The other side is stamped with "Ross Rifle Co Quebec Patent 1907". The pommel and the grips also carry inspection stamps. The slab grips are in very good condition secured with two screw bolts. The push button release works as it should. The bayonet measures 14 3/4 inches overall and has an officially modified clean 10 inch blade. It is contained in its brown leather scabbard with integral frog. The rear is stamped with a faint "1909". This is a very nice complete WW1 bayonet combination in excellent condition. (see Skennerton's item C4 pages 300-303). The price includes UK delivery. 12914.

WWI ‘Ersatz’ Turkish Conversion Bayonet and Scabbard. 19593 - 19593
This is believed to be a Turkish conversion of a German ‘Ersatz’ bayonet, by the addition of a muzzle ring to the grip (see No. 335 of The Bayonet Book by Watts & White which illustrates a similar bayonet minus the added muzzle ring). Ersatz (substitute) bayonets were made in Germany during the early years of World War I, because there weren’t enough regulation bayonets to equip the rapidly expanding army. Ersatz bayonets were manufactured in local workshops resulting in hundreds of variations. The single edged fullered blade is 24 cm in length (38 ½ cm overall) the blade has been re sharpened and is showing signs of age related wear, as is the spine. The steel grips are held with two pins and are displaying the number ‘23838’. The catch functions as it should. The steel scabbard with frog stud retains much of its original paint and has some age related marks. A nice scarce bayonet and scabbard for the collector/enthusiast. The price includes UK delivery. 19593. (Box 3)

*Rare* Portuguese Model 1885 Guedes (Kropatschek) Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 6274 - BAYO 6274
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 ‘VV560’ 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 and ‘U429’ imprinted. There are a few service indents to the rear of the scabbard but they do not affect its operation. The price includes UK postage. BAYO 6274.

Uruguay/Czech ‘VZ24’ Export Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 6273. - BAYO 6273
During the years after WWI, Uruguay imported the Belgian made FN 1924 rifle and standard 1924 export bayonet. The FN was later supplemented by the export version of the Czech VZ24 rifle. Uruguay being one of a number of nations to import weapons from Czechoslovakia. In Uruguayan service, the VZ24 was called the 1937 short rifle. The M1937 bayonet was very obviously of Czech origin. It was a copy of the Czech VZ24 but had a standard blade orientation with the sharpened edge on the lower side of the blade. See ‘An Illustrated History of Bayonets’ by Martin J.Brayley pages 250-1. Wooden grips held by two pins above finger guard with muzzle ring. The fullered blade is 29 ¾ cm long (overall: 43 cm) and is in good condition. The metal scabbard has a green paint adhered to it and has minimal age related marks. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 6273.

It was created by the Australian Government in 1912 to ease reliance on the British for the supply of defence materials). The Lithgow 1907 Bayonet would become Australia's staple weapon along with its counterpart, the Enfield No1 Mark III rifle. This example was made in ‘1918’ which is marked to the cross guard below the ‘Lithgow’ name with ‘2 M.D.’ which stands for 2nd Military. N.S.W. District Eastern Command.

The 7mm Mauser short rifle was equipped with a sword bayonet (M1893). It has wooden grips which have been chequered and they are secured by two screw bolts.

This one carries the legend ARTILLERIA FCA NACIONAL TOLEDO around a pair of crossed cannons., it is unusual to find this stamp on the blade as many were unmarked.

Czechoslovakian ‘M1924’ Short Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 2617 - BAYO 2617
This bayonet is a single fullered spear pointed knife blade with reversed cutting edge (on the same side as the muzzle ring), steel hilt with muzzle ring and protruding rivets, wood scale grips attached by two screws, steel beaked pommel with locking button. Steel scabbard with frog hook and ball finial. The blade is stamped on one side at the ricasso with ‘ČSZ’ over ‘D’. ČSZ stands for Československá Zbrojovka, the state arms factory in Brno. The scabbard frog hook is stamped with ‘ČSZ’ and a three-part stamp ‘E’, followed by a lion emblem, followed by ‘46’, indicating the year of manufacture was 1946. There are no German markings or modifications, suggesting this bayonet has not been reworked during WW2. The M1924 was the first bayonet adopted by Czechoslovakia after its independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918. It fits the vz. 24 rifle, which was a derivative of the M1898 Mauser rifle which was chambered in multiple calibres depending on customer demand. These rifles and their bayonets were widely exported, notably to South American countries: Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Colombia, Venezuela, Guatemala, El Salvador, Brazil, Peru, Nicaragua and Ecuador were all users, and it was found on both sides of South American conflicts of the 1920s and ‘30s such as the Chaco War and Ecuadorian–Peruvian War. During the Spanish Civil War Catalan Republican forces were supplied with vz. 24s purchased by the Soviets. Chinese Nationalist forces purchased 195,000 over the course of a decade (1927-1937), used during the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War. Iran placed multiple orders and also produced a version under license. Large numbers were captured from Czech arsenals after the fall of the Czech Republic in 1939 and reissued to German forces under the designation Gewehr 24(t) - the Czech factories continued to produce these rifles under occupation, with modifications to match German standards. Nearly 500,000 vz. 24s were also ordered by Romania during the occupation. The blade appears to have been re sharpened. The grips and scabbard are in very good condition, only showing minor age related signs of wear. Blade length is 30 cm (43 cm overall. See White & Watts page 52/54 item No 127. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 2617. (Box 3)
