    It is byonet and scabbard for A1A1 SLR I guess.
    There is no markings or serial numbers... so it is Australian model ?

    AMTG, thank you for confirming.
    I don't know what it is doing Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    I saw one before which had serial on scabbard ... close to screw.
    This one has no serials or markings.

    You Cana strip the paint back on the scabbard, mask off the brass re spray it gloss black and polish the brass to get it back to correct standard......we used to her in so much trouble if that brass wasn't polished...

    You could degrease the bayonet handle, clean it up and spray that black to and have a a really nice display

    Just give the blade a light oiling

    I'm doing the same to one I just picked up recently.....I believe a whole heap of ous were sold to a European country after we decommissioned the SLR

    Get yourself either a green webbing or black lacquered webbing frog for it.....green was worn in the field and black lacquered were for parades again the laquering was dome by taking a green one, applying 50 coats of kiwi boot polish and the black lacquer over the top.....the 50 coats of kiwi black boot polish was the army way of keeping us busy
