kar98k bayonet

Article about: This one could go either way. You can always leave something the way it is. This one is a good one to rebuild because I don't think there is much harm you could do to it by putting on grips

    To me I don't see why you couldn't rebuild it with original parts. I mean that's probably why it's in this condition, because someone used it for parts. Even if it were just grips, I think it would add to the overall look

    too be honest ive searched for parts and original grips are quite hard to find....all ive found is repro grips/screws on fleabay.

    Scabbards seem easy enough to pick up but your right about the grips. Remember there is no rush though, things always pop up

    What you want will turn up. Recently I did see some relic grips on Ebay. Also the screws turn up quite regularly. Cast your net a little wider and a few international sellers often sell parts on Ebay too. Another good source of parts are sites like Rask Anik in Germany etc.

    Happy hunting,

    Maybe talk to some of the relic hunting boys, I reckon the bakelite would survive well where the steel might not. Somebody might have something in a drawer somewhere.

    1939 should be bakelite grips. Wood was used very early,
    but was also used in 1944 to augment supply..........
