    Default Austrian m1886 or m1888 Need help

    I need help identifying this Bayonet. Muzzle ring diameter 17.5 but it is slightly open. I don't want to mess with the calibration screw as I don't have the key.

    Markings OEWG no other markings.

    Thank you Reibert.

    Here is another image with my caliper.

    I can't find much information or images on the 1886 if in fact it is that.

    Thank you all for your input.

    AndyB in inspecting the Bayonet again, I see a number 5 right behind the lower Cross Guard.

    Should I attempt to tighten the ring?
