    Berthier Bayonet band VS Lebel Bayonet Band

    Hi Guys

    Curious if the Berthier Bayonet band is identical to the Lebel Bayonet band.

    Thanks for any help on this.

    The Berthier long rifle, similar but not identical, the Berthier Carbines, no. The Berthier has a band spring that catches on the bottom. The lebel band is held by a spring on the right side. Other than that, visually they look the same and both rifles take the same bayonet.

    The Berthier carbines take a completely different bayonet.

    Thank you. Just from images and the lebel one I have I wasn't 100% sure. I did notice the hole placement was different for the springs. Now to make a new barrel and stock up for the berthier!
