    These are rarely seen and I have been looking for one for quit a while. I found one for sale at the Allentown show last weekend, but it was severely rusted/ in relic condition and the seller knew it was a rare bayonet and wouldn't budge on his $250 asking price.

    Lo and behold, I found this bayonet listed on ebay. It was mislabeled as an Italian WWII bayonet. I took a gamble and won the bayonet for $200... Hopefully I did ok. This is the only photo the seller provided:

    A worry that the seller doesn't show the blade/point but as you said, it's a rare bird-those whacky Italians and their plethora of carbines and bayos!

    My thoughts exactly, Lithgow!

    This is how the bayonet was described:
    World War Two Italian Carcano Bayonet. Very nice used condition. Bluing on blade is 98%. Scabbard in very nice original condition.

    There's also a 14 day return period.

    Sounds promising, I hope it's good.

    I was competing with another bidder who I assume also realized this is a transverse. It was very exciting to win out and I feel like I paid a fair price as long as the scabbard isn't hiding something...

    After a problem with the seller's PayPal account, the bayonet has arrived! Condition is amazing!

    Thanks, gents! When I picked up the rifle about a year ago, I was told it would be near impossible to find a sling and impossible to find a bayonet... I have both of those accessories now!
