Selected Bayonets From Various Countries
September 2002 Update from the Bayo-Hunter
The British 1945 No. 7 Mk I Jungle Carbine Bayonet, with
swivel top & Scabbard for a Mk I (Land) Rifle No 4, also used
on the Sten Machine Gun Mk 5 & the EM2 assault rifle .280 Calibre.
A British bayonet introduced on a limited scale in 1946, but
only the Guards Units in the British army had these bayonets for
mainly ceremonial purposes. Few other selected units ever received
it. The blade is that of the No 5 Rifle Bayonet and the No 5 crosspiece
was used without alteration, although its purpose was not to support
the bayonet on the rifle, owing to the fact that the rifle barrel
did not protrude past the pommel socket. The large diameter muzzle
ring of the crosspiece permitted passage of the bullet through
it and ensured that stock components could be used wherever possible.
The Swivelling pommel is a unique feature to this bayonet. The
color of the fibre glass handle is either a "Maroon" version (
like mine) or "Black". The purpose of this is that the bayonet
can also be used as a trench dagger of sorts. The pommel can be
locked down by a catch on the back of the hilt.
Overall Length: 319mm Blade Length: 207mm Blade is made of all
steel parts polished bright. Socket Bore: 15.0mm Muzzle Ring Diameter:
22.5mm Scabbard: is made of all steel, painted Black.
I paid $75.00 Canadian for it. They usually sell for a starting
price for both No.7 Bayonet & Scabbard for $150.00(+) Canadian.
Happy Bayonet Hunting!
