Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Trying to find a favorite

#1 Post by checkmate19 » Fri Jun 30, 2017 11:18 pm

Being new to the forum and the excitement of shooting a few mil surp rifles like the Swiss rifles and a few French ones has opened my eyes to all the stuff I have kept in boxes under the bed for a long time. Some of these bao are real beauties and I am trying to pair them to the rifles they go to. They are so much more confusing than US rifles and bayos.
If it is ok with all of you I would like some help identifying some of these as time goes on. I start googling them and its pretty confusing.

See a swiss bayonet, maybe a Spanish or South American bayonet. Would be better to take individual pictures to get better results.

Don't be too quick to pick a favorite. Often times, an obscure marking or detail will make an otherwise common, run-of-the-mill, bayonet something really special. Take your time and go through the whole box. However, beware! Bayonets can be addictive!

I think the addiction with bayos started many years ago with me.
