NICO56 welcome on board. Your first two posts are certainly interesting. Now have to figure out how to get access to Algerian bayonets and white painted Soviet AK47 bayonets.

Welcome on board NIC056.
Having spent the best part of the last 25 years working in Algeria, often with the Algerian Army or Gendarmes. During that time, I have never seen an Algerian soldier with a bayonet, except in photos, when they are used for parade purposes.

The last unit I worked with last year, was a special forces unit down near the Libyan border and again I never saw any of them with a bayonet.

Getting military equipment out of Algeria is nigh impossible, due to their strict laws and regulations concerning any military equipment, which is strictly enforced due to the Islamic terrorist insurgency that ranged throughout the country during the 1990's/ 2000's, and the more recent resurgence of the Islamic terrorist threat in southern Algeria.

Stay safe
Richard

Richard,

Since you didn't have one of these I figured that was the case.
Hope you are well.

Hello Members,

I’ve been lurking around the forum for a few weeks now, thought I should introduce myself. I’m Lance, From Washington State. I’ve been collecting Militaria for 20+ years. Bayonets have always held a level of importance in my collection. I’ve accumulated around 40-50 Kalashnikov Bayonets. I’m currently working on expanding that collection. I look forward to interacting with the forum. Thanks!
