  1. WTB: WTB Venezuelan-FN49 1924/49 Bayonet

    Very nice FN 49 rifle looking for life mate. Bayonet looks like the FN 1924 export bayonet but has a larger Approx. 18mm muzzle ring.
    The attached photo shows the 1924 and 24/49 with the red insert.

    If I recall correctly the early ones came in two lengths for the 1903 & 1917 and had the Kerr No-Buckle logo on the hooks. The later Thompson SMG ones are shorter and lack the logo.

    Thanks from across the pond for doing a pretty fair job of keeping the fascists occupied until public will turned in favor of the US providing more than material support.

    If the omission/twisting of history continues from the education system I fear you may be correct. I hope there will always be a core (as those here) that appreciate these weapons for more than just...
