Austrian NCO M95 bayonet

Recommended Posts

Well, a few days after finding my M95, I get a lead on an M95 bayonet, and an NCO version at that. Its a bit scruffy with an interesting repair to the handle, but I can probably count on one hand how many I've run into over the years. OEWG and Austrian eagle marked, and a few other markings that may show better after a light cleaning. Glad to have found it!

Is that a wood insert in the grip? Not seen anything like it before!

Certainly well done repair - and a nice bayonet. Now all you need is a portepee and a frog!:thumbsup:

I just bought a bayonet for my M95. I had been looking for a while to find one at a reasonable price. I’m not sure if it is the correct one because there are no visible markining. Here is a picture. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to GWF!

 

This not my collecting area but can say that more photographs will be appreciated, e.g., the serial number on the scabbard. I am surprised that there are no ricasso markings and no rivets are visible in the crossguard though! My small group of 95's has them... So, what makes you sure this is a M.95? Does it fit the rifle?
