    Hallo,

    no, the screws do not automaticly indictate the belgian maker FN.
    Yugoslawia copied the belgian screws by there own license production.
    FN exported M24 bayontes with "belgian" and "german" screws.
    The "german" screws were used since the middle of the 1930th years.
    Srews also can be replaced by an repair etc.

    The missing AT3 or BT3 sign and a number of the top of the pommel are the best indicators for a belgian Export bayonet.

    the only thing indictate is screws,yugoslavia never copy and use that typ screws.yugoslavia stamp all bayonets (all of which were purchased from belgia) ..........not stamp Czech byonets.
    non mark bayonets never used in yugoslavi .... one reason is because some bayonets did not fit on all the rifles in use,as m1924b bayonet.

    Gentlemen,
    I thought that domestically produced M1924 bayonets were made at Kragujevac? Sleepwalker, I had always assumed that the screws on my pictured bayonet had been put there during/as a result of the German modification.

    that model made few countries.....
    yugoslavia made and import bayonets......like germany,czech(mexico typ and VZ24),belgia(M1924/30) and Austro-Hungarian captured ww1 bayonets.
    all bayonets marked with AT3 or BT3,after 1945 use factory 44
    that typ screws used belgia,Czechoslovakia.....
    you can be sure it was made in Belgium,but used in yugoslavia and german army.

    THanks SRB. I thought I had seen those same screws used in another type of German capture bayonet. At the time, another collector attributed them to German depot work.
