*Scarce* British ‘1903’ Pattern Bayonet Converted From ‘P1888’ Dated ‘5/01’. BAYO 6281 - BAYO 6281
The ‘P1903’ design combined the ‘P1888’ blade and cross piece with a new pommel design. Many 1903 patter bayonets are actually P1888 bayonets that have been converted. This bayonet is a good example of a converted 1888. The blade length is 30cm and is double edged. On side is stamped with ‘EFD’ (Enfield) 05/01, and the other with numerous inspection stamps, as is the pommel. The press-stud locking mechanism works well. The wooden grip scales are in good condition with age related marks. The leather scabbard with internal chape has age related marks, the stitching is in good order. See Skennerton, item B230, pages 181 & 182. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 6281. (Box 2)

*U.S. Model ‘1917’ Pattern ‘Winchester’ Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 6282. - BAYO 6282
This is a nice clean ‘P1917’ bayonet made in ‘WWII’ for the ‘P17 30-06’ rifle. It can be differentiated from the ‘P13’ which it resembles by the markings on the blade. This example is marked to the blade with ‘1917’ over a ‘W’ in a circle, meaning manufacture by ‘Winchester’ and consequently a scarcer model, as ‘Winchester’ only made 500,000, compared to ‘Remington’ who made over 2 million. The other side of the blade carries the flaming grenade and eagles head over ‘U,S’. The grips are wooden *with minor age related marks* with two grooves cut across them which is where it resembles the ‘P13’ and was interchangeable with the ‘P13’ except for the ‘P17’ rifle being 30.06 instead of the British .303. The scabbard which is showing minimal signs of use is the standard American ‘P17’ version with belt hooks *missing. These bayonets were often issued to the Home guard in ‘WWII’. See ‘Skennerton’ item B289 page 236. A scarce piece, for the collector. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 6282.
