    Thank you, Mike

    I have to say that I do not care for it. The eagle head and the guard are Extremely crude and cast in appearance. Not what I would have expected to see with an E.Pack piece.

    Hi Mike, I am inclined to agree with Wagriff on your side arm. The blade and scabbard look real to me and from a standard military walking out side arm, but I have my doubts about the hilt. The grip slabs appear to be ill fitting and the grip eagle looks a bit odd? The lack of definition on the hilt casting, could be down to being a very late production piece?? Or a poor mold and casting made from a real weapon? All of the Police weapons which I have seen/handled, tend to be of far higher quality. My advice would be, if the item is cheap and you are happy to take the risk, then buy it. However, if you do, you may have a job selling it for the reasons stated above. When all is said and done and without positive identification, buyer beware.
    It would be interesting to hear other opinions, particularly if they are favorable.

    Cheers Michael R

    I agree with you gentlemen, this bayonet is a poor attempt at creating a Polizei bayonet. It is probably a combination of a few period parts (scabbard & blade) cobbled together with some likely reproductions (hilt & grip eagle, at the least). Period Pack bayonets look nothing like this.
