AirMaks Arms at The British Shooting Show
Here we have something not seen a lot, a training bayonet for the Arisaka rifle carried by the Japanese military but these were given to cadets of secondary school age and are of a rougher basic form than the standard Arisaka.
These bayonets and cadet rifles were given to people of school age so that they could train as part of a patriotic youth movement that would prepare them for consctiption.
This is a hard to find and an interesting form of training weapon.
The bayonet has an interesting armoury marking.
