    My small bayonet collection

    Post by mylle on Mon Jun 27, 2016 1:53 pm

    After I saw the posts of SA80 bayonets in the Uk section, I thought I would be interesting
    to show some of the pieces I collected so far.



    I first started with an East German AKM Type II bayonet and mainly focus on the different AKM type I and II variants.

    AKM Type I and Type II bayonets:








    Starting from the left upper corner on the second pic:

    Soviet made Tula Type II, Soviet made Izhevsk Type II, another Izhevsk one with the A-stan used belt frog, Yugoslavian made Type II,
    East German made Type II, Romanian made Type I, Hungarian made Type I, East German made Type I and the East German made transitional type.

    AK74M:

    Russian Izhevsk and Bulgarian Arsenal version:






    The other batch:





    From the left upper corner:

    Greek G-3 bayonet, Norwegian G-3 Type II, Norwegian G-3 Type I with wood-like scabbard, Italian BM-59 bayonet, Dutch KCB-70 M1,
    Yugoslavian M56 and Czechoslovakian Vz.58.


    US M7 bayonet and Spanish CETME-L:






    No bayonets but still cool,

    Austrian FM78 and German KM2000:

    I didn´t know, that you are also in the bayonets. Very nice collection.

    I wonder, how difficult is it to get FM78 in Austria? Here I can get new Glock made ones in every army and hunting shop for as cheap as 30 € but I would prefer issued one.

    Carbine bayonet looks new. Can we get a close up of the markings ??

    M48 for an M48 Very Happy Very nice. Wood and fasteners look new. Frog is outstanding.

    Good backround. This pattern should have been used in making uniforms..

    Thanks Sal, yes the carbine bayo is pretty much unused and from 1959. I got it out of a box which was marked with a inventory pack list from the 7º Reggimento carabinieri "Trentino-Alto Adige".





    And the Yugoslavian M48 is also very mint. Its an early from before 1953, with cyrillic markings- ПРЕДУЗЕЋЕ 44.

    Oh and yes the mountain side of the tent sheet would have made a good camo for uniforms....Its a pitty.

    Just found this nice- unissued Polish AKM Type II bayo. Note the lack of the typical saw back.
