    Any type 30 bayonet would be appropriate but if you want to match something closer to when the rifle was built, you can get a last ditch type bayonet as well. They used what was on hand. Original...

    You pretty much need to have a book for Italian arsenal marks. They also changed over the years so the circle like you have may not be the same for a rifle 5 years older. I have a lot of Carcanos...

    The symbol on the butt stock is an arsenal mark. In that it matches the rifle, it's probably Beretta Gardone but it's too hard for me to make it out. It probably says and perhaps you can confirm by...

    I thought the brass was unusual but not unprecedented. There are several mid 1800's bayonets with brass cross guards. US Dahlgren, 1861 navy, Ames navy and British 1855

    The thing with the cadet rifles is that they weren't designed for bayonets. They don't have lugs. Bayonets are very rare and if I'm not mistaken, they use the socket type that goes over the sight...

    Good question. It isn't in Kiesling's book that I can find. There is a volunteer? bayonet listed but it isn't of this type and the muzzle ring is actually larger. Only thing I can suggest is...

    Two Books on Uniforms and Equipment

    I did not know these books existed until last weekend. A display included the one covering Japanese items.

    Well, it is kind of a shame as it has it's crest. I'm neither a purist or an experimenter.

    Gil,

    Would they have supplied to the US Cavalry also. Not unheard of and the US military was probably short on materials when they entered the war. Bit is English, the Rosettes are US Army.

    I'll say it again here, no clean out hole. In my learnings over the years, that is a dead giveaway it is a repro. Seems such a small thing but all the known legit ones have it. All the known fakes...

    Thank you so much. Was starting to think I'd never get a reply on this. Figured it was somewhat specialized but someone would know.

    If you want a Type 30 to shoot, my advice would be to find a Type 30 you can shoot. They are out there and not unreasonably expensive. In many cases, the seller has no idea what it is and to them...

    I would say no. Most people are asking $5 for them with the carrier. I suppose if you wanted one just to show people the difference it might be worth having but I have not plans to get one.

    Mosin Bayonets

    Just got this book on a whim as I found it on ebay with 2 minutes left. It was originally written in Russian and was a softcover so be careful if you find it to check which edition it is.
