Re: Supporting this forum

Had one or 2 more guys contributing a few bucks. I don't want to name names (most prefer not) but want to thank those of you who did. It is greatly appreciated and really does help.

Re: Supporting this forum

Just a gentle nudge a year later. Just paid out around $100, which is a lot for a South African. I'm ok with funding this..the although we are not the most active forum out there, there is only so much new info that can be posted and I think we have accumulated more than anywhere out there. But if a...

Re: 1980's 'Trench Art'

Well done personalization. I'm guessing this would be done on a non-official bayonet...maybe one already "liberated" from the arsenal or picked up in a market etc. Doubt you could get away with doing that on an issued bayonet.

Welcome, glad to have you on board.
This isn't a hectically busy forum, but I do think we host some of the best info on these bayonets anywhere online.

Re: INSAS

I think they are a private company contracted out to make the bayonets for the Indian army. The ones we see are likely overruns, but I do not think commercially made. Jeremy Tenniswood in the UK may know more as he sold/released many if not most of the ones we see today, over 15 years ago. He must h...

Re: Valmet Bayonets

Very interesting, especially since I own an early latch lock Beretta M38 (the SMG version without the muzzle ring) bayonet.
I suppose the Valmet version is uber scarce?

Re: Mine VZ58´s

They are a great collecting field themselves, and most can be had inexpensively.
Very nice. Keep it up, there are so many variations. Looking good.

I like that field knife version. I assume no slot at the back?

Re: Romanian Type II variations

Martin,
SA ones will always have an A prefix.
Axxxx
Or actually... A1xxx
7076 would not have come to SA, it must be part of either Romanian or other country issue. When I referred to the one with double logo and I as Romanian contract, I mean it is not part of the SA export/purchase.

Re: Romanian Type II variations

I haven't seen an SA contract one available for over a year. Seems whatever was stolen from special forces has now calmed down or been secured. Only way they would have left there. They do have a lot of the rifles and ammo that they bought late 80's..I guess for foreign weapons training. But only a ...
