    Yes m38 folding bayo for the M38 Short rifle (won't fit on the long m1891 or 1941 rifles)-the folding mechanism is pretty fragile and difficult to make so many were converted to not fold and later made bayos were non folding from the start.

    In principle it was a great idea as it could be folded on the rifle and popped open for quick access. In physical action it was not robust enough and not a great setup as a weapon. Just as Lithgow said, These were later constructed as non-folding.

    Still an original is much in demand on the major auction sites.

    Its an ineffectual weapon, more like a butterknife blade and not easy to unfold on the rifle without cutting yourself-I have one about the place but can't locate it at the moment.

    There is also a rarer version for the Beretta sub machine gun
