    Default K98 Bayonet Question - Restoration Complete

    This is my 3rd installment concerning the recent K98 bayonet I recently purchased. I have soaked the handle, screws, & flash guard in vinegar as suggested and it worked great. It removed all the rust & corrosion. It has totally changed the appearance of the bayonet. I have a real bargain at $80. Hope you enjoy the pictures and comparisons. I have enjoyed communicating with everyone and sharing this project with you. Thanks for all your help.

    Sincerely,

    William

    Thanks Glenn, and its really enjoyable also. When I first got this bayo home I was disappointed with the rust and grips but it sure cleaned up well.

    Thanks,

    Default Finished Bayonet

    Finished Bayonet. The grips were two very different colors or finishes. One was light, natural wood and the other very dark almost black finish.

    How should they be mounted? I removed them without looking at & noting their placement. Thanks for your sharp eye.

    I went back and looked at the original pictures and see they have to go in the other way. Will Do. Thanks again for bringing that to my attention. That's why we have your experts.
