Re: Another MKIII bayonet with Ishapore connections

Looks like a No.1 Mk.II* Bayonet made at the workshops of India's North West Railway (NWR) to me. I have one, that was made there in 1943 (marked "NWR" "43") Just like yours. I think these were also made at the Ishapore Rifle Factory as well? I have three Indian made 12" bay...

Smith & Wesson M&P Model 10-5 .38 S&W Special Revolver.

Hello
Here is my run of the mill S&W M&P Model 10-5 .38 S&W Special Revolver. This revolver is circa 1966-1967. Not rare or well sought after by any long shot, but I still love this revolver.
Thanks
Mark

Re: Pattern-1903 Bayonet

If this works out, on the India page, there is a Pattern-1903 listed with the same scabbard, which is listed as a "Indian Pattern". Also there are some good photos of the Pattern-1888 Bayonet Scabbard (which to me, looks like a shorter and wider pattern-1907 Scabbard). Anyway, this page ca...

Re: Pattern-1903 Bayonet

The scabbard looks similar to the Pattern-1907, which looks similar to the Pattern-1888 Scabbard (don't have photo to post). But the Pattern-1907 Bayonet Scabbard is more narrow to fit the slimmer blade. A Pattern-1888/1903 Bayonet will not fit into a Pattern-1907 Scabbard, I have tried it. Also, th...

Re: Pattern-1903 Bayonet

If this can be read, it barely shows the original 1897 date from this bayonet's years as a Pattern-1888 Bayonet.

Pattern-1903 Bayonet

Hello Here is a British (Indian marked) Pattern-1903 Bayonet and Scabbard. This Pattern-1903 Bayonet was converted from a Pattern-1888 Bayonet. This bayonet has British Indian property markings and has been fully blued. From what I have heard, these were converted prior to the Great War, circa 1912-...

Re: New here

Very nice, my first No.4 Mk.I* was also "salvaged" from a sporterised rifle.
