No. 5 bayonet for Jungle Carbine RFI 1978
German Ersatz bayonet with scabbard
Siamese Mauser 1903 Type 45 bayonet
Early Mauser bayonet produced between 1903 and 1908 by Japan for us on the Siamese Mauser Type 45 rifle. Japanese influence is evident in the oval grip fastening screws similar to those used on the Japanese Type 30 (Arisaka) bayonets. Characters on the ricasso represent R.S. 121 which corresponds to the year 1903 on the Western calendar. Original, very interesting Mauser bayonet variant and in VG condition. Scabbard shows wear and some dents not unexpected with this bayonet.
