I just got a used bayonet and i need some help getting it's ID correctly.

It is one of the early ones with the speartype blades. Blade is chromed and has a blood grove. It has a triangle and arrow on one side of the front guard. The arrow is complete with the fletching inside the triangle. It also has a stamped serial number on the back portion of the hilt. The grips are a reddish/brown bakelite. The scabbard is parked black and has a yellowish/green hanger and a leather strap.


I can send pictures of it is it will have me identify it.


I was told the arrow inside the triangle is either romanian or russian. But if the arrow has the fletching at the end it maybe the russian.

thanks for any help.

Patrick

It looks like the "arrow in a triangle" of the factory in Izhevsk, Russia. So I'd say Russian. --NoJoe
