    Run away. Nothing original about this one. The bayonet, scabbard, and tool insert are all 100% reproduction. Quite a few of these have been showing up of late often with signs of artificial aging.

    Thanks for the additional pics. The frog marking is FRANZ BREHME > WALSRODE 1942. A prolific leather producing firm. They were also one of the few makers of frogs for the S.98/05 during the IIIR...

    The bayonet is from the last of several Weyersberg Behoerden contracts and dates from 1943. As already stated the scabbard is earlier. The correct scabbard would be unmarked as well but a later...

    I can see that working. Just don't see how it's matching to the receiver as stated in the OP.

    Very interesting rifle. I'm seeing 62883k as the serial number. Bolt serial appears to be overstamped? Hard to make out might be 2 over a 6? Next digit might be 2 and 8. Serial number 2283k? ...

    Made in China, a recent reproduction that has been aged. There are also other examples with different makers' names; some with ugly plastic grip scales and others wood like seen here. The frog is a...

    - Very few examples have been recorded. This is the case for several of the smaller makers in 1934. Andrej would have more detailed information.

    Andrej, have several recorded but have not confirmed an organization or unit identification. Personally, I am not convinced that it is a Reichsbahn property marking without further documentation.
