This bayonet and scabbard are shorter than I expect to find. What do I have here?

I think that may be a South African version of the No9 bayonet made by ARMSCOR; but I'll have to check. Cool looking blade.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

It has zero markings but a thick coating of paint or something? The thick main part of the body has the blade inserted into it then pinned to hold it in place.

Yes! That is the one, thanks for the clarification, Zed! I'll be keeping this bayonet for my collection.

The scabbard seems quite long compared to the blade. Nice find though.
