Carcano Folding Bayonet

#1 Post by B32dominator » Sun Jun 11, 2017 11:42 am

Finally tracked down a folding bayonet that cost less than my rifle. Had some surface rust but cleaned up great!

I picked one up in very nice shape on ebay a few month ago minus the scabbard, for $130. I figured it lives on the rifle, the scabbard didn't matter.

Neat. I had one as a kid without the scabbard, and it disappeared one day. I suspect my mom was worried

I picked one up years ago at a gun show as part of a batch of 5 old /odd bayonets along with a couple of British spike bayonets and oddly enough, a Johnson rifle bayonet. All this for $15.
I had no Idea what I had bought for a year or so until a friend told me what I had. It was just luck mixed with ignorance with no keen observation on my part. I have since improved some.

I'm not a fan of Italian rifles for the most part but that folding bayonet has always got my attention they are very cool.

Not often you find a bayonet dearer than the rifle but this is one of them.

Your Bayo looks to be in great condition.
Does yours have some remaining "plum" finish on it?

Mark AP, I agree for the most part. I got and M38 just to get one of the folding bayonets as the Italian representation in my collection. But I would like to get a long Carcano for comparison, it's a nice shooting rifle.

The blade has just a small amount of the plum finish at the base of the blade. There's is some minor pitting on the blade and there was some surface rust when I bought, but it cleaned up pretty nicely. The condition kept the price down which was nice.
