Latest Version Romanian Type I Hanger

Post by Mr. B. »

This is what I believe to be the final version of a hanger for a Romanian AKM 6X3 Type I bayonet and scabbard. It could also be used to attach the AKM 6X4 Type II "transitional" bayonets with the Type I scabbards. Rather than a typical separate belt hanger, this hanger is incorporated as a permanent part of a combat vest or harness. This vest hanger would only work with the Type I scabbards and not the newer AKM 6X4 Type II bayonets and scabbards.
For those that might be interested this Romanian vest / harness is currently available from RTG PARTS for $74.95. It's interesting but a little too pricy for me and difficult to display in a collection.
