    Two new bayonets

    I picked up a coupe of bayonets today; one is for the Mosin-Nagant rifle and one for a K98.

    The Mosin blade is in excellent condition; however, the taper doesn't match that of the barrel on my Remington Mosin. Does anyone know if the Remington barrels were machined to different specifications than the Russian barrels?

    The K98 looks to be a Dress bayonet; the only markings on it are puma solingen. It's in really nice shape and came with the scabbard, but no frog. This too was difficult to mount on my gun, but after a little buffing of the internal blade rails, lubing and going on/off a dozen times, it warmed up to the gun (still a little tight, but much easier on/off than originally).
    ​​​​​​​If anyone knows about these blades, please chime in, I'll get some more pics tomorrow.

    I have one that says Soligen Tiger on one side of the hilt and a tiger etched into the reverse. Blade is a bit under 8". Same single hooked quillion. Same checkered black grips. Black painted scabbard. I haven't tried it on my 98K. No government markings.

    Some more info here...

        Never heard of a "Remington Mosin"? Just watched a "Forgotten Weapons" video on that; interesting! my K98 looks exactly like yours. Its Russian capture (x marked) 42 code Mitchel's Mausers import

          How long is the blade on your Soligen Puma?

            So, in 1915, the Tsar’s emissary ordered a million and a half M1891 Mosin Nagants from Remington with matching bayonets and another one million and eight hundred thousand from New England Westinghouse.

            Remington had produced just under eight hundred and fifty thousand guns between 1915 and 1917 with only a little more than one hundred and thirty thousand having reached Russia by January of that year

              it doesn't lock onto the rifle though, even when fully seated.

                I have the same dress K98 bayonet that my dad bought back in the '80s. Someone before that sharpened it so it has no value. Cool history on these.

                  Your Mosin is M91, and your bayonet is the later version, used mostly for 91/30. Saying that , locking part of bayonet is a little different, but could fit with some adjustment. Historically speaking it is a wrong bayonet for your rifle. It it too tight, you can file it down, I would recommend do NOTHING with rifle.

                  BTW, Mosin ammo pouch is post WW2 model.

                    These may predate the nazis, explaining the lack of dirty bird stampings.
                    This screen shot is from my prior link. It seems a lot of these were not expected to actually mount on the rifle.
