    Hello,

    here is a scare trial bayonet for the czech Mauser-Jelen rifle.

    It was picked up in a small village by Dresden in Saxiony. It was hidden in the roof framework since 1945, because in the former DDR it was vorbidden to own bayonets.

    The Mauser-Jelen rifle, a modifed Mauser rifle 98 in caliber 7x57, was developed by the ingeniuer Rudolf Jelen in 1919 and produced in 1921 by "Československá Statni Zbrojovka" (CSZ).

    This trial bayonet were made for testing purpose in a number of 300 examples in two versions, 150 Examples with a double-edged blade in length of ca. 400 mm and 150 Examples with a double-edged blade in length of ca. 500 mm.
    The shown bayonet has a blade lenght of ca. 400 mm.

    The hilt is made like the hilt of a austrian Mannlicher M95 bayonet, with the exception that the "muzzle ring" is closer to the handel an has a diameter of 13mm.
    "Muzzle ring" in " because it is more a holding ring. The Mauser-Jelen rifle has a bayonet lug like the british SMLE rifle.

    This bayonet has no visible accaptance stamps, only the matching number "4" on the top of the hilt and the frog stud of the scabbard.
