    Any ideas on what or what time period this is from? Thank you very much... It is long and unusually shaped.

      Is it antique? WW1 or WW2 or earlier? Thank you.

      Old style, not sure of dating, but Chrisp should be along to id, he'll know all the particulars about it. What I can tell you is is call a "Pike" style bayonet, I'm thinking 1800's, but I don't know

      This is the Russian model 1891/30 Bayonet from WWII. The Russians didn't use a scabbard like that, but the Finnish military also used this bayonet and I think the scabbard is theirs.

      The off-set triangular bayonet was used with black powder guns mainly. Even the B/P breech-loaders had to be "swabbed" after a few shots to fire accurately so used them for awhile. Non-fouling smokeless powder pretty much antiquated this style bayonet, Don't recognise this particular one would say pre 1890.

      The plunger type attachment system instead of a locking ring was used by the Russians starting in 1930. That's what first clued me in that this isn't 18oos. Why the Russians continued with a spike bayonet instead of a bladed one through WWII is beyond me. I will be posting one of these with my Russian/Finnish Mosin-Nagant in the weeks ahead.
