    Default Model 1907 cutdown

    Hello all,

    I found this at a local pawn store for $35 and snatched it up right away. I think they thought it was broken due to the muzzle ring alteration and therefore undervalued it. At the time I thought it was a No.1 Mark I (or a cutdown 1907 to meet the No1. Mark I length). It certainly is a cutdown Sanderson m1907 but as you can see from the No1 mk II in the same photo, it is quite a bit smaller than an India pattern bayonet. Neither does the scabbard accommodate a No. 1 mark II blade length. And it appears the muzzle ring is a big tighter too. The frog looks German to me but has no markings.

    Can anyone add any detail to what little I know about this piece? Any ideas as to who or for what rifle it was altered? Or is it unique?

    Pal

    *I added the 1907 and No1 mkII in the photos for size reference. The new one is the one on the bottom.
