    Default Info on bayonet

    Hello all,
    i found this bayonet in a shed, a few years ago while on holiday at a friends house in Gurnsney, he was renting at the time..can i get some help to id it, the number 48289 is on the hand guard...i can't find any other markings, from end to end it is 500mm in length, the blade is in a T shape also i'd say it would clean up well, so what do i need for that job....
    thanks all....

    Hi Darren , that is a French 1874 bayonet that fitted the Gras rifle , so it makes sense that you found it in Guernsey . I would give it a spray with some WD40 and see what you`ve got underneath ,
