Description

~ WW1 M1916 Belgian Bayonet For The 1889 Mauser Rifle ~

When the modernizing Belgian Army required a new service rifle all their own, they turned to the existing and proven German designs, bypassing any lengthy, and untimely costly, indigenous initiative in the process. The German design served as the basic framework for the Belgian offering which was slightly modified to suit Belgian military requirements. It was this rifle that turned out to be the very first successful firearm to be produced in number by Fabrique Nationale.

Except for a stamp on the guard the bayonet is unmarked.

~ Dimensions ~

The blade length is 17.75 inches (45.5 cm) and the overall length of the bayonet is 22.75 inches (57.5 cm).

It weighs 435 grams.

~ Condition ~

The bayonet is excellent free of damage or significant wear.

~ Postage ~

UK postage is £15, international at cost and it can be viewed in our shop.
