    I'm not too sure about the rest, but the one at the bottom looks like a British No7 MkI, but with the rear part missing.

    Thanks

    GasMasksUK,It is. But it was $10.
    4md,Thanks! It is a shame. But it was cheap. Well,It was all cheap. $160 for all the stuff in the pic. 4 '07's were $100,1891 Carcano was $30,other 2 were $10 each,rest was $10. The guy had 4 more but no scabbards.
    I degreased the '07 bayonets. I have a MOLE,SANDERSON,Wilkenson and a SLA2 42Rich A. in Pa.

    Hello-what's the condition of the 1891 Carcano like?-rare to find the leather frog with the early pattern leather/brass scabbard.

    PS 'SLAZ 42' would be on the grips indicating they were made by Slazenger 1942-actual bayo should be a Lithgow made example 1942.

    Lithgow,It is ok. No blade finish,1918 scabbard. Are they rare? I have 8
    in leather scabbards now. But I collect Italian Militaria.
    Thanks for the info. It is marked on the grips. I do not collect Commonwealth items so I would have to look it up sometime. Rich A. in Pa.

    The Italian bayos aren't that rare except in very good condition-the general industrial weakness of Italy and the long service history of the 1891/1941 rifles meant that they ended up well used.
