    There is still confusion on the Belgian family of bayos and my reference is from J.A Maddox's book "Collecting Bayonets" no. 136 pg 124

    [QUOTE=reneblacky;208995]There is still confusion on the Belgian family of bayos and my reference is from J.A Maddox's book "Collecting Bayonets" no. 136 pg 12UOTE] Hi Rene,Here`s some pics to show the difference between a cutdown M24 and the new purpose made Fn49 bayonet,the cutdown ones are single-edged and the fullers are quite different,especially at the crossguard,the Venezualan bayo is called an M1924/49,but still the old style fullers.the one that qotd posted is the new style,there were abuot 175,000 produced so they are not that common.If you don`t agree with my findings then we shall have to cordially agree to disagree....Regards..Pete.

    I agree with Zwerge-bayo is FN M 1949 Type1 -the blade appears more tapered but that may be wear from sharpening-the markings on the bayo are numbers in the Farsi (Iranian)script-the rifle it fits was the SAFN Model 1949 in 7.92mm for Egypt-the general design was the predecessor of the FN FAL SLR.
