    Default German Bayonet Help!

    Hey guys,

    So I have had this bayonet, and I don't really know what it is. I was told "German Bayonet" but I cant find any lookalikes on the net. It has the muzzle ring cut off, characteristic of the czech bayonets, but has an all metal handle and a knob type thing on the scabbard. Could anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

    It is indeed a German ersatz bayonet - probably made 1916 or 1917. The muzzle ring has been removed and the "knob type thing" is a replacement.

    Many of these were acquired and modified by the Turks after the end of WW1.

    Price = good especially 50 C dollars for the complete one you mention.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards

    Wow, thanks guys! Today, i checked out the $50 one, it had original green paint (peeling, of course) and had not a muzzle "ring" but more a flat, two pronged thing in place of the ring. I dont know what it was. I opened it, and it was COVERED, i mean covered, in oil and grease... not the best looking knife. I think ill purchase the P1907 wild tiger bayo instead.

    P.S. is $45 for an Austrian m 1895 with frog and scabbard a good buy?

    Thanks alot guys, I love this forum

    The ersatz bayonets did not have a complete muzzle ring so the one you describe could well be OK.

    $45 for an 1895 +frog - good price I think.

    Hello-the 2 prongs allow the bayo to fit onto a variety of old or captured rifles used by the Germans in WW1-being covered in grease is a good thing as it preserves the blade and usually means that its spent its life not being used and abused in service-clean it off and you may be pleasantly surprised. The Ersatz (=substitute in English) bayos are a wide and varied collecting field in themselves-many differents makers and types made under wartime pressure.
