    A Greek bayonet frog?

    Hello,

    last days I found this. Is it a greek bayonet frog?
    Is it for the M1971 webbing?

    There were no markings on it.

    Yes, this is Greek, and it is for the M1971 webbing. It is one of the few items that does not really have any counterpart in the US M1956.

    What bayonets were in this, I know they used the FAL, but never saw any bayonets in photos.
    Some Type C variant?

    Ok so both A and C, was there any year known that the type A was phased out?

    And does anyone have a photo of a confirmed Greek used type C bayo so I can see which exact type they had?
    Any photos of real use would also be welcome
