    Default So I found this bayonet....

    Hey all,

    I found this bayonet while looking for antiques and I bought it for US $40. Originally I thought it was American but my hopes were dashed when I saw an american bayonet. So I did some research and found that it appears to be a Hungarian or Czech bayonet from either WW1 or WW2.

    Help please?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    +1 for the Czech. From the quick research it was made for the Prague Castle Guard -Presidents honour guard. This info can be found @ Czechoslovak Bayonet markings Nice one.

    The bayonet is a czechoslovak Vz.24 for Romanian contract probably, should be marked on pommel with serial number and between grips. Is no way a Castle honour guard.

    I think I paid around $35 for mine, with scabbard. If you wat an M1 bayo, get one from the CMP. If you're buying accessories you don't have to belong to a club or go through any of the matches like you would to buy a rifle. They aren't that expensive this way, more than likely you'll get a Danish or German scabbard, but the blade will be American.

    Michael, As Andy tried to tell you it's not for a "presidents honor guard", and it seems to be just an average bayonet by itself in a somewhat worn condition. With the "CSZ" on the blade representing Ceskoslovenská Zbrojovka which was a period factory marking. And the "S" just being a production letter block similar in idea to a batch identifier, in the range of the contract bayonets for Romania as Andy also stated. Regards, FP
