    I was browsing e-bay and I saw these. I thought they looked funny, so I clicked on the link. These have to be the worst quality reproduction bayonets I have seen. They look like an arisaka, franch gras, chassepot, and an ersatz bayonet. Just horrible..

    EDIT: It is funny that they use phillips head screws in the grips.

    I'm no expert,but they look pretty good even if they are repro's. Heck,just look at some of the prices for just one repro. $89 aint so bad for some wall hangers.

    Ha, the inscription on the "French Gras" looks like a 3rd grader wrote it....

    And, who ever aged them, if they are repro's, did a darned good job of it.

    At least the vendor is not claiming them as genuine and actually does state that they are reproduction. Personally I think that whoever has made them has made a good job on approprately distressing them for age, wear and tear etc.

    It must cost a relative fortune to produce these fakes! Who is making money??

    They are not fakes. They are just a bunch of beat up junk bayonets.
