    That is about as nice a Belgian M16 as I have seen. It has condition, is matching, unit issue marked, and even has the frog! One thing I always wondered about was why the Belgians, having originally...

    Very nice example of export M98 bayonet! Is there a serial number on the left side of the cross guard? It looks like the one supplied for the M1935 Brazilian Mauser.

    Thanks for the info, Antoni. Regarding the chain, I was thinking those made for the HK93 (5.56mm) rifle are quite similar to the WW2 KKW type. If memory serves, they don't have the weight at the end...
