bayonets... got pics ???

so I finally got the milsurps hung on the wall of my walk in gun safe, & started pulling accessories out ( mags etc. ) I found that I only have bayonets for one rifle ( I actually have 2 for one rifle ) would like to find bayonets for my other rifles that can take them... pics may help for gun show identification ???

anyone have pics of these for some of these other rifles ???

anyone know if the 6.5 Jap rifle had a bayonet ??? mine has the mum, & is pretty complete, but I don't see a bayonet lug

6.5 Carcano
M1 Carbine
K-31
M-1A ( or M-14... sorry not sure of the designation... but the one that shoots .308 ) mine is a semi auto only, but was put together from parts, including some national match parts so it wears some of both... it has the cage type flash hider that the bayonet would have to slide over, think it has the M-14 butt plate with the flip up piece...

the only bayonet I have currently fits my Garand... one has been grossly sharpened, & one looks in original condition... curious what the bayonets might be worth, that I'm looking for, & the one that's been sharped that fits the Garand...& how hard it would be to find them in this goofy political climate ???

not like I'm planning on "sticking anyone", but the Garand looks nicer on the wall with the bayonet attached...

You ought to get a real bayonet like mine ! A Yataghan style sword bayonet with 22" blade .It's very impressive stuck on a long barreled musket !

I'm actually going to be looking for one for my Enfield Martini carbine in 303 British... I think they used a big sword bayonet on those...

bayo

Magnum: Have you looked at "Atlanta Cutlery Corp." ? www.atlantacutlery.com.
They have stuff for the Martini Henry's. Good luck.
PS: if you have a Winchester mdl97 Trenchgun, you'll need to get a M-1917 Bayonet for it.

Gary, I've never seen one shine like that before - other than those made for parades. Is this a parade model or has it been chromed or something else to make it shine?
