ARAB ISRALI WAR RE-ISSUE A/H 1895 MANNLICHER BAYONET

Unusual Austro Hungarian 1895 Mannlicher Bayonet
Heavily blued blade with original markings ground off
Only marking is an "F" cut into the pommel by the push stud
All external metal work including scabbard again blued
Frog stud without any A/H markings (Removed ?)
In a British 1937 patt frog.
A little research showed -
During the Arab Israli conflict (1956 onwards)
Numerous "Surplus" Bayonets and Rifles were re finished
Having all markings removed -re blued etc.
Then sold to both sides
This in my opinion is one of them
Its a good clean bayonet at a fair price
If it had Hebrew or Egyptian marking on it
The price would have been significantly more !!

Code: 50433Price: 60.00 GBP
