Lagniappe bayonets

Postby Niner » Sat May 15, 2010 3:16 pm

Another subject brought this to mind. Remember the "free" bayonets we used to get with purchases from Century? Some I can identify and some are a little unknown as to what they came with. I dug out some of the ones I have and took some photos just for the heck of it.

One of the bayonets on the table was just thrown in and wasn't supposed to match any rifle I bought... Spanish from the 70's I think. Can't remember what it is.

The mysteries include the original matches for the Yugo Preduzece 44 marked Mauser bayonets. Probably the factory 44 refurb made for various Mausers....they could have been intended for any number of related models....and no doubt came to me that way. And one of the Turk mausers has a metal piece in the handle that seems to have served some function.

There is one in the batch that I actually paid for. It's the one for the Steyr Mannlicher has the sharp edge on the top and the flat edge on the bottom.

Click on the photos to see a larger view.

Robert, the one on the upper right with the green plastic scabbard is for the Spanish CETME.
Century used to give those away; they had so many.
I like those Turk & Yugo blades.
The Yugoslavian bayonets also fit German & Czech Mauser 98 rifles.
