    Looks like one for a Italian MAB-38 sub machine gun. Rich A. in Pa.

    Yes, it is for the Beretta 38A, but has brass fornitures, so it is for the post war model, the 38A-44, that was sold to Egypt during years 1950-1955:
    Many dishonest people pretend it is for pre-war Beretta 38A for the PAI and ask crazy amounts.

    I have many sources for informations about these bayonets but they are only in italian language, like this one:

    Baionetta ripiegabile 91/38 - page 2

    Have you seen the whole post? There is also one photo of a brass one.
    Again: the brass model was produced only for egyptian MABs of years 1950 ahead. The iron model was produced only for the few pre-war MABs for the PAI (Polizia Africa Italiana = Italian Afrika Police) on 1939. Perhaps 500 units produced.
