Scarce German M1914 Sawback Bayonet AND Scabbard. BAYO 689 - BAYO 689
This is a nice original M1914 bayonet with second type pommel and sawback. These bayonets were thought to have been export versions to South American countries but at the outbreak of war were diverted to German army use. These bayonets are known in three versions without sawbacks and three versions with sawback. But as the German army practice of having only 6% of the total made with a sawback, it makes this bayonet scarce. It has the second type pommel with a sawback blade of just over 12” in length and an overall length of 17 ½ “. The blade carries B.K within an oval which is the trademark of Karl Lindstrom of Berlin, the brand name being ‘BEKA’. Karl Lindstrom received a contract for 100,000-150,000 S14 bayonets but this was subsequently cancelled due to late delivery and unreliability. See White & Watts No 280, pages 115 & 127 also German knife & sword makers by J. Anthony Carter. A scarce bayonet in a black painted steel scabbard. P.S there is also an Imperial inspection of the blade. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 689 £475

SOLD SOLD (05/06) British WD Lee Speed Patent Enfield L.E.1 (Mark 1) .303 Calibre Rifle By LSA Co (London Small Arms Co) With Australian ‘MOTTY’ Mark, Magazine Cut Off, Long Range Volley Sights & Flip Up Rear Aperture Sight**UK/EU DEACTIVATION CERT** - 18454
The Lee-Enfield .303 MK 1 was introduced into the British Army in 1895 and in Canada the year following. It replaced the Lee-Metford, which had been the standard issue firearm since 1889. The latter was a magazine-fed repeating rifle, but it fired cartridges using black powder which emitted smoke when fired that gave away the rifleman's position. In 1891, the British first produced cordite a propellant that burned cleanly without emitting smoke. It also generated more heat, however, which wore out the Lee-Metford's rifling system of seven shallow grooves. A new rifling system was developed at the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield, consisting of five deep grooves that could withstand the intense heat generated by the cordite. The result was the .303 Lee-Enfield MK 1 rifle, in all respects identical to the Lee-Metford except for the rifling. The new rifle saw service in the Boer wars and beyond. Harry Motton was a gunsmith based in Sydney who later went into business with Edwards as "Edwards & Motton" in both Sydney and Melbourne. He had a wide range of gun products on the market and the British gun trade provided him with rifles foer conversion to target use. He was a notable rifle shot and was part of the sucessful Australian team at Bisley in 1907. This is an excellent .303 calibre Lee Enfield L.E.1 bolt action rifle. It is crisply stamped on the right side of the strap LSA Co (London Small Arms Company) L.E. 1 (Lee Enfield MK 1 designation). The rifle is number H298 and the barrel shank is stamped ‘MOTTY’ indicating that this rifle came into the hands of the Australian gunsmith and shot Harry Motton after British service. It has a stepped blade fore sight, flip up rear peep sight which has WD inspection mark, long range volley sights, ladder sight, bayonet bar, sling swivels & magazine cut off. The wood work is all original and in excellent condition with just the bumps and bruises to be expected. The stock has a brass butt plate with trap. Deactivated to UK / EU specification in 2021 the weapon’s bolt, trigger & magazine cut off move. The magazine with single can be removed. The price includes UK delivery and UK / EU deactivation certificate. Sn 18454
