    Default Canadian Arsenals C1 bayonet

    Hello everyone,

    Here is my Canadian C1 bayonet for the C1 and C1A1 Self Loading Rifle and C1 submachine gun made by Canadian Arsenals Ltd (formally Longbranch) in 1960. I'm not sure about the rest of the world but these are pretty scarce in Australia. Its missing the scabbard screw, anyone have any ideas about where to find an original spare (without buying another scabbard)?

    Any comments welcome

    Thats a Nice one, most are pretty beat up, the rare ones date from he late 50s. they are around here in Canada, but not common, I have never seen a scabbard for sale by itself, and the chances of finding an original screw are about nil. You might have to go to a place that sells standard thread machine screws to replace it.

    Nice! Seem pretty scarce to find over here in the UK so I was pretty pleased to get mine a couple of years ago, price was just as per a UK L1 type bayonet which made it even better as I had expected to cost a bit more due to its scarcity! Mine is also a 1960 dated one and is in pretty good condition, also came with a Canadian frog which made the price even better!

    I've never tried it but would a screw for a UK or Aussie scabbard just be the same? Probably easier to find a battered scabbard for one of these with a screw in it?

    Thanks for the replies Dean and Time Bandit,

    I picked this one up on eBay for less than what the Australian SLR bayonets are selling for-which are ridiculous considering how common they are.

    The spare no 5 scabbards are quite easy to find here but I can't remember ever seeing a beat up one going cheap. I was thinking if the no 4 scabbard screw is the same size, they are usually a bit cheaper.
