    Hi GrWht. Yes please if you have some information that would be beneficial to the K98 forum please by all means... We would enjoy more documentation in identifying producers sub contractors and any other keys pertinent in unlocking any hard to answer questions. Regards Larry

    Larry C, Thanks for posting this information. I bought a K98 bayonet with metal shealth and no frog in a little shop in Pirmasens West Germany when I was in the US Army. I always wondered when it was made and by who. The only problem is finding it in all my stuff. We recently moved and my belongings are heaped in piles in the closet. Neat piles mind you but piles nevertheless.

    Hi Josef Welcome to the forum......all the thanks goes to the author and WRF Member " Bichon "

    I have never seen such a compilation of producers and code numbers to this extent before. Im sure others may exist..in the K98 bayo community ..yet not my forte in collecting. Glad you found it useful. Enjoy your stay here. Regards Larry
