    Hello All,
    This is a bayonet I picked up recently. I have yet to get it confirmed but I think it may be a genuine Experimental Bayonet for the short lived Farquhar Hill automatic Rifle of the 1920's.
    There are reproductions out there normally the wrong length and dates are wrong on the ricasso, The trials were conducted by the mid 20's with the rifle which was rejected because of feed problems and weight.

    The bayonet which was a 1907 modified by re shaping the point and shortening the scabbard was made about 1924.
    N
    My one fits all of the criteria for size and dates.
    I need to compare it to another so anyone with any knowledge please help. This is a very rare bayonet ..I hope it is a good one.

    Top two photos are the Farquhar Hill Rifle and the Data for it.

    Regards

    Jim

    Hello All,
    Just had an E-Mail from Ian Skennerton who believes this bayonet to be a genuine example.
    If anyone else has any thoughts please let me know.

    Regards

    Jim

    If Ian says it is OK, that is good enough for me.

    Cheers, Ade.
