Looks like a L1A1 (SLR) bayo to me.Has the barrel ring been cut?
That's it. The ring has indeed been cut off - and the button removed,
turning this one-time bayonet into a knife. If you are thinking
of a purchase, don't spend much on it.........
The locking clip and button (the hole in the pommel) also appears to be missing
you have just confirmed what I already suspected - that the button is missing. It is going for buttons anyway (pardon the pun) and I wanted to make sure.
Its a No5 jungle carbine bayonet.Shame its been butchered....and the scabbard looks to be missing the throat piece.
I have compared these pictures with the SLR bayonet and the jungle carbine bayonet, (they are almost identical) but it looks like the no.5 jungle carbine bayonet to me.
