3 Bayonets


Recommended Posts

I bought a group of military items recently and these bayonets were in them . I dont know much about bayonets and was wondering if anyone could identify what these are? One has a tag from a prop company and some paper work so maybe its a reproduction of some sort?

I'm not certain about the center bayonet but the other two appear to be non-U.S. You will have much better luck posting them on the World Militaria Forum: http://www.worldmilitariaforum.com/forums/

Interested in items related to:

-Amarillo A.A.F. / Amarillo Air Force Base

-Military instillations located in the Texas Panhandle, South Plains, and West Texas.

I think the left is a Carcano bayonet and the right is a FAL. The center one could be any number of socket bayonets is it 3 or 4 edged?

The first bayonet is indeed Italian, M1891 Mannlicher-Carcano. The scabbard made in 1940. The lettering preceeding the 1940 indicates the arsenal where it was made, but I can't exactly read it. The third bayonet, which is a FN FAL Type C bayonet from the 1960's, could be Dutch. I cannot see the full serial number. If the number is preceeded by KM, it is Dutch Navy.

Looks like the middle one could be a US model 1855 bayonet. It is missing the locking ring. If a penny slides through the socket, it will fit a .58 springfield. If not it, its for the .45-70 trapdoor.
