Help with Bayonet I.D.

Post by LordOfDankness » 22 Jul 2017 20:17

Please help with identifying this Bayo. that was gifted to me. I don't know much about antique weapons and haven't been able to find this exact model no matter where I look. The blade is about 38 cm, and the code on the hilt reads '2570-R'.

The scabbard and handle look a little different, thank you for the reply though!

Not a Czech Vz 24 bayonet that I can see - it is probably a clone of the longer Vz23 that was made as an export model by Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal (Belgium). Attached is a picture of the Czech Vz 24 which has the edge of the blade on top, crossguard rivets etc.
