    Strange Wilkinson

    I saw the photos of this bayonet, it seems a P-1913/M1917, but Wilkinson did not make such bayonets. The grips are from a 1907 bayonet.

    In my opinion it is a 1907 bayonet with the guard from a P-1913/M1917.

    What do you think?

    Unfortunately the pics attached are the only two I have.

    No problem. I have a P14/17 with the guard of a P07.

    Such modification are common and are known from South Africa, India, Egypt and Iraq. South Africa and India modified more P07 to P14/17 and Iraq more P14/17 to P07.
