Hi,

Someone say to me that the anti rust protection was make after the fabrication maybe recently.

His argument: mat aspect and maker stamp very superficial.

 

What you guys think about it ?

 

Thanks,

Beikeur- Based on the photos, I believe you have a legitimate WW2 PAL M1905 bayonet, with correct, original scabbard.
The finish looks correct, blade appears to have very little use, parkerizing (gray) seems correct for a PAL. Due to lack
of scabbard wear on blade, it appears to have little us. The handle grips look a little rough, and I am not sure if PAL
used brown grips on their M1905 bayonets, may have been replaced. Scabbard is correct. I believe you have a very nice bayonet.

It looks as the grips may be painted brown due to the gloss ?

For the grip, It seems they were cover by wax for stockage and transportation.

I'm a little confuse, because I think it was a M1 and not M1905, no ?

either your bayonet is unissued or it has been refinished.  Either way I think is a really nice M1905 bayonet.  I've posted a link that will help you.  It was put together by a member of our group who was a wonderful man, sadly he passed away.

I think you are right; here is a picture of my AFH 1942 reddish-brown grips.  They almost look black in pictures.

Hi,

 

The person who sell me this bayonet, said that the grip are covered by some wax to protect during transport.

What do you think about that ?

Are you aware of that ?

 

Thanks for your precious advices.

I think your grips look correct.  May I ask how much you paid?
