You could spin  a great yarn to the gullible like they did with Durendal in Rocamadour!


I had to google this to read the story.......LOL!


There's several more Swords in the Stone too!

1 ea M95 Steyr Mannlicher bayonet and 3 ea M91 Mosin Nagant lock-ring bayonets 

I did have one complete M91 lock-ring bayonet, but it's lacking a lock-ring now. The bayonet became stuck on the rifle, when knocking it loose from the barrel, with a mallet I missed the elbow of the bayonet and managed to hit the lock-ring. I somehow ended up destroying the lock-ring (I'm talking broke the ring in 3 places, and for the life of me I don't understand why it was so brittle), talk about some colorful language being thrown around that day!

Seems the M91 lock-ring bayonets are in the $150.00 and higher range lately. Even the standard bayonet for the M91/30s are getting north of $50.00 lately, when they were only averaging $20.00, which just floors me.....

Bayonet story for you. I was looking for a bayonet for my 1879 Swiss Vetterli M69/71 and the P1853 bayonet. Found them online and emailed the guy he responded at first that they were still available. So I asked for a total with shipping for both, but he never responded. Then he finally gets back to me and tells me the P1853 is no longer available. I say fine give me a total for the $150.00 Vetterli bayonet with shipping, never responded again. I started looking again online for them. Then I remembered I had some odd homeless bayonets that were given to me some years back for free. 

Low and behold after searching through a few totes I found what I was looking for, and I had the correct Vetterli bayonet here all along. So I didn't end up spending $150.00 plus shipping for a bayonet, all because a seller decided not to answer my simple question......His loss allowed me to spend that $150.00 plus an additional $10.00 on two bayonets, this P1853 bayonet and a Yugoslavian long bayonet for my Belgium made Yugoslavian/Serbian M24 Mauser.

Yeah I've got 5 bayonets now that are still rifle less, these are part of the pile given to me for free some years back. These 10 are the ones I can remember from that pile. 

Rifle less ones:

2 ea Turkish M1935 Mauser bayonets 
1 ea Russian or Bulgarian 6x2 AK47 bayonet
1 ea Turkish G1 FN/FAL bayonet
1 ea Swiss M1889 bayonet (Missing scabbard)

Ones with a home:

1 ea Romanian Type 1 (6x3) AKM bayonet, which is now on my WASR 10
1 ea Swiss M1871 bayonet, which is now on my Vetterli M69/71
1 ea US M7 bayonet, which is now on my AR15A2 (M16A2 clone)
1 ea British No 4 bayonet, which is now on my No 4 Mk 1
1 ea German WWII dress bayonet (Doesn't fit a rifle obviously)

Posted a few other pictures of the sling installation that weren't downsized so much. Looks awesome on the old girl......

Guess I'll start looking for a P1853 still in muzzleloader configuration, SMLE Mk 1, and whatever else Enfield I can find. I tell you collecting guns is a sickness, sitting at 40 weapons as of right now (Only 2 Enfields). 

Thank you to everyone for your help and assistance and to A Square for the sling.

SQUIRRELSS! They bin tearing up me gardens all summer! Now last week was squirrel day in Louisianna & it got me to thinking..ok I've pulled my gardens out & planted garlic, rhubarb & Horseradish..but the buggers keep digging them up!! So, I set up both my live traps & caught one right away. Figgered I'd give him some time (like 24 hrs to think bout his sins). Came out this morning & 1 trap had been cleaned out without sprining..& THERE WAS 4 MORE SQUIRRELS runnin round. So, I caught me a 2nd one Fetched a pattern '53 bayo & eventually skewered the first bugger..but he was takin long time to quit so I fetched another '53 bayo & skewered t'other one. He STILL wouldn't quit, so I fetched a 3rd '53 & skewered the 1st one a 2nd time.Figgered I had him good..opened the trap & took 1 '53 out of him to help me with the 2nd bugger. I heard a noise & the little bugger slipped the bayo - with 3 holes in him & ran away!! . Now its war!!Traps are re-set..bayos are cleaned & I won't make that mistake twice. (I gotta get 'nuff squirrels for my own squirrel smother!1

a 410 makes short work of them and if you aim for the head you dont have to pick out too much shot , one thing from my teen years i miss is a mess of fresh squirrel in dark brown gravy with some mashed potatoes , my friends mother was latvian - she had the seasoning down to perfect

bein a "city-dweller" the local constabulary (aka: Niagara Regional Police Farce) would just LOVE to get a report of someone discharging a firearm in the city!!
They would no-doubt respond with that $525,000 tank they just bought(with our money!!), confiscate all my shootin irons...& take my squirrels for evidence!!
