Per Jerry Janzen, in 1916 the French government ordered 200,000 1907/15 Mannlicher-Berthier rifles with bayonets from Remington. Only 100,000 of the rifles were delivered and the remainding quantities of the rifle and bayonet were purchased by the US Government and remained in store until April 10, 1959. The bayonets look like standard French made Model 1886/15 bayonets (made without hooked quillion) except for very slight grip contour variations. Only those bayonets received by the French were proofed and serial # to the gun.
