    Default North Korean AKM, (M 68), bayonet

    Hi, mates !

    Wanna show you an very interesting bayonet.

    This, north-korean, "M 68", bayonets, (and assault weapons), were exported to Cuba.

    Cuba, (in turn), exported such weapons to revolution-forces in Grenada, Colombia, and, Panama.



    BTW, Cuba was involved in Angola in the mid 70īs.

    In 1989 in Panama the US captured a lot of weapons during "Operation Cause Panama".
    Huge stocks of such "M 68" bayonets were given to the GIīs as "souvenier".

    Thatīs the reason why, you can find such bayonets in the US, but, itīs very hard to find such bayonets here in Europe !

    Best regards,

    R.

    P.S.:
    As far as I know, such bayonets also were exported to Peru

    Greetings Reibert,

    that’s a nice bayonet you have posted. I got mine from directly from an Arms’ Room in Panama, but of course for free:-)

    Regards,

    Lance

    As far as I know, thereīre two different colours of the belt loop, also, different markings on the crossguard.

    Hereīs another one, note the different colur of the belt loop.

    Congratulations Reibert, it is very hard to find, most of the collectors in Hungary (including me) are missing this type.
    Any informations about the produced quantity?
