    Default Canadian Arsenals No. 4 Mk. II bayonet

    Hello everyone

    Not sure if one of these has been posted on the forum before. A No. 4 Mk. II bayonet made in the 1950's by Canadian Arsenals Ltd., formally known as Longbranch as indicated by the A within C makers mark. Apparently there were only 5000 made post WW2 - Not sure if I believe that story as they are fairly easy to come by.

    Now I just need a nice 1950's Canadian Arsenals No. 4 rifle to match.

    Any comments welcome.

    Post war the factory was renamed Canadian Arsenals and the marking is A within C which is the tiny making under the No. 4 Mk. II marking in the original pics.
