**RARE**WOOD GRIPS VARIANT**Early Post WW2 British Sterling Sub Machine Gun Bayonet By Sterling Arms Company & No.5 MK1 Scabbard With 1937 Pattern Webbing Frog. BAYO 690 - BAYO 690

This is an excellent original Sterling Sub Machine Gun bayonet and scabbard with frog. These bayonets were made by the Sterling Arms Company at the end of WW2 for sale to military & Police markets both at home & abroad. To all intents and purposes they are a No.5 Jungle carbine bayonet but with ‘Sterling’ in a rectangle etched on one side of the blade. Our rare example has clean, undamaged wood scales but no oil hole in the pommel as the No.5 does. There were other grip materials of plastic or sheet metal mounted on these bayonets but the wood grips are the rarest. Skennerton in his book British & Commonwealth Bayonets only shows the plastic and sheet metal variants indicating the rarity of our wood grips variant. The bayonet has a fullered an 8” Bowie style drop point blade which is clean and it measures 12" overall. The pommel with fully functioning release button and cross guard with muzzle ring retain their original black finish. The scabbard is the No.5 MK 1 with steel mouthpiece, in excellent condition with original black finish and no dents. The scabbard has a round steel frog locket and is fitted with original British 1937 pattern Khaki webbing frog. The rear of the frog has no legible markings. Overall the bayonet, scabbard & frog are in excellent condition. A very hard to find bayonet and the price includes UK delivery. BAYO 690
