Item Description

Original Item: Only One Set Available. Several years ago IMA acquired a large bayonet collection from a very enthusiastic European collector. Some of these we have decided to sell in small groups, giving starting collectors a great chance to pick up a few bayonets to get started with collecting. Here we offer two Post WWII manufactured European Mauser Bayonets, complete with their original scabbards.

The Mauser Gewehr 1898 was most likely the most influential Bolt-Action rifle design in history. Mauser Werke exported derivatives far and wide, and even after WWII many countries continued production of Mauser bolt action designs. The U.S. M1903 Springfield was itself so heavily based on the Mauser Action that Mauser Werke sued and won in court.

The first bayonet in the set is for the Yugoslavian M1924 Mauser, and is not converted from a pre-war bayonet design, as many of their earliest bayonets were. It is fully blued with a slightly tapered 15 1/4 inch long blade, which is marked B T 3 in a triangle on one ricasso, which is also marked on the scabbard. It is otherwise a relatively standard Mauser design bayonet, though it does not have a flashguard on the back of the grip. Condition is very good, with a lovely finish.

The second bayonet is essentially a copy of a WWII German 98K bayonet, with a slightly narrower blade. The bayonet and scabbard are completely unmarked, but we have been told that these were manufactured in Spain for 98k rifles that they had received from Germany and during WWII. The bayonet is in very good shape, while the scabbard looks to be older than the bayonet, and shows wear an denting.

Two very nice Post WWII Mauser bayonets, ready to become a part of your collection!
