Copy of MAS36 bayonet for FG-42 Paratrooper rifle (10.000 made)
Well done fake.
+Forged, not machined.
+-Most measurement correct or nearly correct.
-Total lenght is 2mm too long (267mm vs. official 265mm)
-handle end missing.
-FG42 bayonets have no markings.
-Blade too short, 180mm vs 190mm
-Lockers are spaced as in MAS-36 bayonet, they should be nearer each other.
-Handle is a bit too thin, 13.5mm vs 14mm
-It was sold in a german e-auction as 3-day "unknown bayonet", and most bidders stopped at around 50 E.
-Most likely MAS-36 bayonet machined to look like a FG-42 bayonet.
French markings, dont think this is a real deal.
Obvious fake: 6 mm too long and machined instead of forged.
