WWII Russian Mosin Nagant M1891/30
In an excellent condition a Mosin Nagant M1891/30 bayonet
This is the 2nd model/ version of the Mosin Nagant bayonet with leather frog/ scabbard, otherwise called the M1891/30 bayonet.
These specific type bayonets were used by the Russians during the 2nd WW and were crudely made (in haste). In 1930 the old style M1891 bayonet was re-designed by E.K. Kabakow and J.A. Komaricki with a new socket and press stud, hence the addition of the name /30.
The blade is in crucifix style and has a characteristic screwdriver end. On one side near the press stud it is marked 490 and X and the otherside a 2 the rest has become unreadable..
The bayonet frog or leather scabbard is in excellent condition all stitches are in order.
Blade length 43 cm
Overall length 50,2 cm
