Quantity available: 1

Rare original Polish Army bayonet wz.28-29 produced by F.B. RADOM (Arms Factory Radom) for a Polish Mauser Karabinek wz.29 (Kbk wz.28-29) rifle, based heavy on the the K98AZ German infantry rifle of the time. The bayonet was also essentially a modified copy of the K98 bayonet.

This very rare example is fitted with a muzzle ring, which was only featured on the Pre-War M1930 version of the bayonet. Earlier and Mobilization issue bayonets had a cut off muzzle ring, similar to the German k98k bayonet. Additionally, many of the M1930 version were later modified by removing the ring.

CONSTRUCTION/MATERIALS: Steel and wood.

MARKINGS: The bayonet has very clear maker and proof marks:

The ricasso bears the Polish crowned eagle proof mark and the letters W.P. (Wojsko Polskie = Polish Army).

The reverse ricasso bears F.B. RADOM, for Fabryka Broni Radom (Weapons Factory Radom).

The pommel is stamped with small Polish crowned eagle.

The scabbard is stamped on outer site below the mouth with military acceptance mark D2 in ellipse and other small acceptance stamp on the other side below the retaining spring rivet.

Dimensions:

Overall length of the bayonet in the scabbard: 40.5 cm (15.94 inches).

Overall Length without the scabbard: 38.5 cm (15.16 inches).

Blade Length: 25 cm (9.84 inches).

CONDITION: in very good condition considering its age. The release button and the scabbard retaining spring works fine.

The bayonet has been professionally cleaned and reblued by the previous owner.
