    Default E. u. F. Hörster 44sgx Bayonet

    Here is an example of a late 1944 Hörster bayonet. Hörster had already completed their first alphabet run when they ceased using spanner bolts to affix the grips and began using rivets. Sometwhere in the "ff" or very early "gg" range, their code was changed from "asw" to "sgx". Additionally, they began using a phosphate finish on the bayonets and scabbards. Although not particularly rare, these "sgx" pieces seem to be eagerly sought after by collectors. Enjoy....

    Yeah, please post your new find. For comparison, I'm going to post an early asw44 and a riveted asw44 with a phosphate type finish, but more of a blue/black rather than the later OD/feldgrau phosphate we all know & love....

    I haven't stumbled across one of these yet, either. Well, at least not one for a reasonable price. Color me jealous!

    Dave Roberts and I purchased a couple of 98k's from an auction a few months ago. Both came with bayonets on the rifles, his with no scabbard and mine with mismatched scabbard/blade. Good thing we knew each other- his bayonet was an sgx44 phosphate. Mine had the matching scabbard for his bayonet.

    The auction house had no clue...

    Slash/Lance & I went head-to-head on this one on eBay over 12 years ago. I won, but the price was anything but reasonable.
