    Mo is correct.

    Bayo is, as stated the m1891 for the m1891 long rifle and Dragoon models-the later m91/30 rifle bayo has a different spring loaded attachment method.

    I have never actually been successful getting one of these on a Mosin Nagant!

    From what I have read, Soviet military doctrine included extensive, permanent use of the bayonet. The idea was that once the bayonet was attached, it wasn't supposed to be taken off! Those Mosin bayonets are fearsome things, but they make excellent screwdrivers.

    I don't really know how they got away with the 'no more than 2 edges to a bayonet' rule but I suppose it worked.

    Due to wide manufacturing tolerances, the bayos are serial numbered to the rifle they fit-Finnish remanufactured socket bayos are reground to a point rather than the chisel blade.

    The bayo on my mosin has matching serial numbers... I have to use the multi tool to wrench it off. Damn thing pinches my skin and cuts me all the time!

    The example posted looks to be very heavily blued in the photos and may be a WW I contract to Remington arms in the U.S. for Russia?? Also, for the Russian cavalry enlisted men they were not left attached to the rifles. But instead mounted on the saber scabbards when not in use until the adoption of the M 1944 carbine as shown in the attached image. With another image showing some variations in markings. Which is where it could get a little uncertain, as the the one on the far right does not have either the usual Imperial markings, or those normally associated with the Soviet era. With the Cossack saber itself being dated 1938, and my sense of the bayonet (which came with it) as possibly also coming from Zlatoust in the same time frame. FP

    screwdriver heads are awesome, attached to the rifle it doesn't take lots of effort to stub trough a 3mm thick laminate . Try it. Most of the time it had to go trough overcoat. It's cold down here in Europe. 91s are longer you probably could stab an enemy on the other side of river. It was recommended to try not to allow bayo go into body more that 1/3 of its length otherwise it could stack among ribs. Ak bayos starting from 6x3 were made right of 1/3 of Mosin bayonets

    But sometimes if you manage to brake it, you could end up with this, till you find another one
