    It looks older than it is as it has many old fashioned features-the birds head pommel, the heavy cross guard, the chequered wood grips-the bolo blade was intended to clear brush like a machete but it's too small to be effective for the job-will fit on a variety of Spanish rifles including this M1943 Mauser rifle with an auxilliary bayonet lug.

    Hereīs an M1941 bayonet, showing plastic grip plates, (refurbished at La Coruņa Arsenal).

    Rumorīs say, M1941, showing plastic grip plates, also were in use in the spanish Navy.

    This pattern bayonet fitīs to the M1893 Kal. 7 x 57 mm, M1916 rifle.
    With adapter to the M1943 Kal. 8 x 57 mm also.
