    Default Portuguese Contract Bayos on Ebay

    There is a seller on Ebay who has a few Portuguese Contract bayonets. They are all buy it now listings. I do not think any of them had scabbards. They are in fair condition at best and none of the ones I looked at were trashed. The seller is t.r.-west . I could not get a link to work so here is one of the Ebay item numbers, 224018537919 . Maybe a mod could post a link to these. IMO I think they are over priced but.....

    Everything I saw in his militaria line is quite overpriced. Portuguese M37 contract bayonet(s) in pictured condition sans scabbards...$40-$50 max. However, whom would even want one for that unless maybe they had a correct scabbard acquired for next to nothing? Few collectors see any real desirability in these unless they are in exceptional condition with a proper or matching (in the case of the M1941 contract bayonets) scabbard.

    The bayos are way overprice for what they are. The only exception would be if there happened to be one that matched my M937 rifle.

    Your only exception is the only reason I said anything about these bayonets. Thought there might be a chance someone on here could find a bayo for their rifle.

    Ebay number is not correct, anyway a portuguese Mo937 were longtime underestimated, when matching and good condition so most real about 100 worth.b.r.Andy
