    Default AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN bayonets Mannlicher mod. 1890 and 1895/05

    Hello dear collectors, here is some photos of in my opinion very interesting Austro-Hungarian bayonets Model 1890 and 1895/05. Both models are hard to find in today's market.

    I will start with Mannlicher bayonet model 1890. This bayonet is very nice, produced by "OEWG" Österreichische Waffenfabrik Gesellschaft, Steyr and on the blade is also "double-head austro hungarian eagle). Another marking is unit marking - "42 R/4069" - from this marking we can certainly say that it belongs to Infanterie Regiment Nr. 42, Ersatz-Batalion, Ersatz-Kompanie Nr. 3 - pretty nice marking isn´t it ? On photo there is standard Mannlicher model 1895 bayonet, so you can compare both.

    Mannlicher bayonet 1895/05 I add very soon.

    I hope you like the photos.

    Regards Peter

    Hello, I promise to send photos of Austro-Hungarian bayonets model 1895/05 - and here they are. Both bayonets were produce by "F.G.G.Y" company - Femaru Fegyver és Gépgyár, Budapest. Mannlicher 1895/05 bayonets were produce only by this one company. This bayonets are very similar to standard Mannlicher 1895 - but you can certainly see the difference. Condition of one 1895/05 is not the best, but I still like it, because this bayonets are hard to find.

    Enjoy phopos

    Very nice, focused collection of an interesting bayonet. I have one in semi- relic condition that I bought in Krakow (Poland). It has had the muzzle ring ground off and appears to have been used as a fighting knife. Have you come across any like this or do you have any further information on them? Cheers.

    Hello, I saw a lot of Mannlicher bayonets with cut muzzle ring. People did this thing, because they want to use this bayonets for another purpose (for example to kill pigs). But there were also some bayonets for example Mannlicher 1888 which were transformed to fighting knifes. Some collectors believe that Mannlicher 1895 were transformed to fighting knifes and I saw one, but in this time is hard to tell which is authentic.

    Yes, you´re right, it´s hard to tell if such "shortened" bayonets are authentic indeed !

    But, it´s fact, that the "Sturmmesser" was used together with the 1890 pattern bayonet scabbard.

    The belt loop of the original Austrian-hungarian Kampfmesser Modell 1917 was poorly made and was damaged easily ...
    So, the "Sturmmesser" sometimes was seen with the scabbard of the M1890 bayonet.

    Hello friends,
    Reibert thanks a lot for nice pictures of Austro-Hungarian fighting knifes! I never saw fighting knife model 1917 with Mannlicher 1890 scabbard and also I don´t know that this fighting knifes was use with it, so thanks for your valuable information! I also add some photos of fighting knifes, which are in my collection too.

    Spitace41, thanks a lot for showing your Mannlicher 1895 bayonet, it is very sad to look at this hardly damaged artifact, most of bayonets ends like yours Are there any markings on your bayonet? Maybe we can say to which regiment its belong.
