    No5 Jungle Carbine Bayonet

    A friend recently picked up this bayonet sold as a No5 which I believe it is. I also would think it is real and not some Indian made Knockoff. However I can't find much info and there isn't much to go off of. No markings on the blade except electro pencil 922. Scabbard button has E and looks like maybe S? Grip has 48 marked on it. The only thing I could come up with is it was issued for the 1948 Malaysian Emergency. Any info would be great.

    It looks genuine to me. I'll venture a guess that it's made by Elkington in 1945 and if you look real close on the top of the blade next to the guard, you'll find a small "M78" stamped there which was the makers code for them.

    To say that there isn't a lot of info about these bayonets on this very forum beggars belief.............. If I was you I'd take the grips off it, put the screws and nuts back in and send it to Brian at BDLicon and ask him nicely, when he's next doing a big pile of bead blasting, phosphating, painting and baking, would he strip the catch, spring and bolt out of it and put it in with the others together with the scabbard. Then when it returns in a month, Yoiu'll have a virtually brand new No5/SMG bayonet worth a lot of money

    It looks like the real deal to me also but there is no clean out hole. I thought all originals had clean out holes.

    Good observation there. I still think it's original too. Maybe it was assembled from original parts post WWI.

    So Malaysian Emergency 1948 is off base?

    Sarcasm? Honestly I don't know who BDL is but I'm guessing someone who humps stuff?

    As I said the one posted originally a friend bought and I couldn't find any answers about 48 on grips and no markings.

    Here is mine not the greatest pics.

    There are a lot of discussions about these on these forums. Seems like every time someone finds a new one we start all over again.

    No idea on the 1948 Malaysian Emergency but I would doubt the 48 has anything to do with that.

    Brian has a good reputation for restoring these bayonets. His info is on here somewhere.

    Pretty funny...would be Brain Dick Ltd and he's a front line gunsmith... It was being suggested he would refurbish your blade to as new. He's the same poster that answered you in post #2.

    Now how do you feel?
    Regards, Jim

    Hump stuff, me? Well, I try every chance i get! I like them between 5' - 5'7" tall with long hair and big t-ts.

    Seriously, since I'm probably the only person in the USAicon that has the correct original paint, good luck getting it done right somewhere else.

    Perhaps the clearing hole is there but is completely filled with dirt and hardened grease/cosmolineicon?
