  1. As I have stated I’m new to this forum and I was wondering if anyone could help identify a bayonet I recently received. The blade states that it was made by Ames Manufacturing Co. in 1860 but I am having trouble figuring out what model it is. The blade measures to be 22 7/8” long with the handle measuring 4 3/4” long. Any help would be appreciated thanks. I’ll try to help provide additional information if possible.
  2. Hello all, thanks for letting me join the forum. I have had, for many years a bayonet, ( I found at a rubbish tip ), and was wondering if any enthusiasts or collectors could throw any light onto what type it may be. Problems are... No markings at all ( rusted and pitted )... No press stud ( but a small hole about 30mm from pommel ). The blade is around 142mm, very close to AK type bayonets, and has an overall length of 264mm. The muzzle ring isn't round, and I wonder if that would indicate the type of weapon it related to. Other than the muzzle ring it appears to be a knife, it may of course have been modified but it doesn't seem likely that the press stud attachment has been removed, and, other than a socket type bayonet, i don't know of any other attachment methods. Wondering if any members have seen anything like this, or can direct me to other forms of enquiry.. Thanks...
  3. I spent a couple of hours "forging" this for my middle son's musket. I used only the highest quality PVC pipe, holding the socket to the bayonet with super glue and a couple of finishing nails to act as pins. Shaping was done with a bench vise, belt sander, and a heat gun, and finally, it was treated with and undercoat of black, the best quality genuine Krylon "Hammered Metal" paint. Enjoy! PS: If you didn't have one of these rifles in your childhood, I'm sorry. You were deprived.
  4. Mods, please feel free to move this where appropriate. About 25 years ago, I picked this up in a pawn shop in Columbus Indiana, as a Christmas present for my brother. The owner knew diddily about it, and I know about as much. I finally got around to taking some measurements of it, and taking some pictures. The measurements are thus: Overall length: 20 7/16" Blade length: 15 3/4" Blade width: 1" Spine" Just over 3/16" Based on the age and the lack of rust, I'm guessing the blade is some variety of stainless. The scales on the handle are aluminum. Pommel and guard are steel. Whether they were blued at one time or just dark with age, I'm not sure. The inscription on the blade reads: WEYERSBERG KIRSCHBAUM & Co. SOLINGEN Based on that, all I can say is that it's a German bayonet, but from what era, and what rifle it went on, I have no idea. Can anyone tell me more?
