This was my grandfathers. He managed to obtain this during WW2.
Don't think he was running around with this thing.

I think it is a Swiss made....not sure though.

    Yep, I strongly believe this is Swiss. A Model 1911 Pioneer bayonet for the Schmidt Ruben Carbine. I have a line drawing of it in Janzen's Notebook. I tried to check out the HS manufacturer mark online, and apparently nobody's sure who that was.

    Thanks guys
    Yea, all I was able to come up with was that it was swiss made. I looked through the Bayonet survey online and couldn't find those numbers though. No clue how Gramps obtained it over there....he was kind of a wheeler and dealer though.

    I believe Swiss bayonets were not serial numbered at the factory, but stamped with a corresponding number when issued with the rifle. I'm just going from memory on that, sorry I can't site the source.

    I actually read that the other day after I posted.
    I think it was on a forum.
