    Possibly done by a GI in the early postwar period as this was a popular practise, as chrome was fashionable back then.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I think the scabbard all chromed out just rubbed me the wrong way. After seeing JUST the bayonet, its not soo bad. I think if it were just the fittings chromed and not the blade, I wouldnt mind it at all. I could also see doing it to a dress bayo, but a combat?

    I honestly had no idea that people were into chroming bayonets back then!! At least I can say I learned something new today
