    Default Identification Help

    Hello all,

    I recently came in to possession of a pair of bayonets by way of my grandfather, who said they belonged to his father. I'm interested in finding out how old they are and where they come from. My great-grandfather says they were french, though, he could be mistaken, or my grandfather could be remembering incorrectly, so I don't know how much stock I'd put in that. Any help identifying these would be appreciated!

    Russian Mosin Nagant Bayonets I would say, for the model 1891 rifle, as used in both World Wars.

    They look like Mosin Nagant socket bayonets used on the 1891/30 rifle.
