    Default Bayonet Identification Help Request

    Hi guys

    Perhaps you can help me, I have trying (so far unsuccessfully) to identify a bayonet that I have had in my possession for some time now. I did try the Imperial War Museum and the National Army Museum but they were unable to help at all.

    I have attached some pictures and the dimensions are as follows

    Overall length of bayonet 370mm
    Length of blade 245mm
    Width of blade (at widest) 23.5mm
    Diameter of fixing eyelet 15mm
    Overall length of scabbard 270mm

    Any help or info would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    Hi, Its a Siamese Mauser bayonet, made by the Japanese for the army of Siam (Thailand) dates from around 1903, it fits the Siamese version of the G98 Mauser I beleive, I have one in my collection also.

    After a bit more research these bayonets fit the Siamese Type 45 Rifle which although based on the Mauser action was not identical, so these bayonets may not fit the German Mauser's.

    I have in fact tried mine on an Argentinian Mauser and it was a reluctant tight fit, I did'nt force it on though.
