Original Italian WWII M1938 Mannlicher Carcano Rifle Folding Bayonet
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a wonderful example of a WWII Italian M1938 Carcano folding bayonet. This unique folding knife bayonet for use on the Mannlicher-Carcano M1938 Short Rifle (fucile corto). These rifles were produced in both 6.5 mm. and 7.35 mm. This example is the push-button folding model, where blade folds into handle like a pocket knife. This was done because the bayonet was intended to remain fixed to the rifle. This did not work well in practice, so the folding feature was discontinued and a steel scabbard provided. This particular example is complete with a very rare original steel scabbard (most were never made). Overall condition is excellent, with functional push button and original finish on blade and wood grips. A wonderful rare bayonet perfect for any WWII Italian or bayonet collection.
