Description

Norwegian M1894 Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 326 - BAYO 326

This is a Norwegian M1894 short bayonet for the Norwegian 1894 Krag Jorgensen rifle. These bayonets were made at the Konesberg Arsenal in Norway or at the OEWG Arsenal in Austria. This is a Norwegian produced bayonet and carries a crowned K marking on the blade together with inspection stamps and a controllers inistials on the other. The crossguard carries the number 106144 which is repeated on the scabbard throat. It is unusual to find these bayonets with matching numbers as most have been re-married when in for re-furbishment etc. The bayonet is held in place by a press stud locking device which also operates the locking device for the rifle. The grips are of plane wood held by one screw which also acts as a pivot for the locking catch. The blade is single edged for most of its length apart for a short ½” length at the tip. The steel scabbard retains most of its original black finish. These bayonets were still in use in 1940 when Norway was overrun by the Germans and were used by German second line and security troops during the occupation. See Martin J. Brayley, An Illustrated History of Bayonets item 526 on pages 229 and 235. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 326
