    Default German modified Polish Perkun Mauser Bayonet

    This is a Polish Model wz.27 Mauser bayonet captured and modified by the Wehrmacht. It still bears its original Polish serial number, Perkun factory stamps and Polish Army mark.

    The German modifications include the deep bluing of the blade and scabbard, and the removal of the scabbard rivet from the top center-side and replacement with a short German screw, which was fastened to the exterior edge of the scabbard. The latter modification was also mandated in 1942 on Yugoslav Model 1924 bayonets, but is not always seen. The original rivet hole was filled in and blued over.

    It seems that the Polish bayonets are more infrequently encountered than other German-modified varieties. Most of those I've seen were made at Radom.

    Hello, no problem Pat, thanks for nice words, the Wz.27 find is harder as normal Wz.24, anyway there are by germans added bolts in opposite direction like by polish configuration. The scabbard is strange and reworked in various ways, strange is the german type hook, same as probably 2 holes were plugged with brass,which dont correspond with front screw/rivet of scabbard. On front there is a digit 9 on left side of brass area?thanks.b.r.Andy
