    Default S/155 g

    Just got this 1935 Horster bayonet at an antique shop for $85.00. Probably overpaid, but I wanted a nice bayo for my byf44 mismatch.

    Nothing wrong with that prize! Nice early bayonet. Reworked some time, and got bakelite handles in the prosess.

    Did they use both plastic and wood grips through the manufacturing period or are plastic always later production?

    Like mentioned bayonet is a rework most real, as the 1934 production were only with wooden grips, the blade was slightly sharpened postwar, luckily not heavy as the blade looks ok with high polished blued surface. The plastic grips by origin rework should be serialed to bayonet or ass.numbers under them on tang.b.r.Andy

    Thanks for adding the details, what for Eagle/WaA is on the grips?, there is assembly or ser. number of 8695, most real from old piece where it was mounted by production.When there is a WaA883 it could be for Solingen area producer of 1940-2 period. Flashguard is too mixed there is 581 number, which is not on bayonet.
    On S/155G are two sets of serials, one 8113 for fg and grips and other 159 for locking lug.b.r.Andy
