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.

Pat '07 Bayonet for my SMLE

#1 Post by Tommy Atkins » Wed May 09, 2018 12:11 pm

Well I dun did it. Won a Pat 07 Bayonet off e-pay!
I've been looking for one to fit the BSA 1914 ShtLE & this looks like a suitable candidate in well used but not beat to heck condition. Sheath leather looks like it needs a little help, but we'll see. My neatsfoot oil (not compound) & a little black shoe polish/ scuff cover dye should work wonders.
Paid US$125 shipped so I think I did all right.
I was pleased with the result, I was playing 3 vendors off against each other. They were all asking $140~$150 + shipping & I got it down to $125 shipped so I'm happy.
Can anybody tell me a bit more bout the markings?

I see:
(a very faint) Kings crown
1907
9XXXX17 (X's are blank spaces)
on one side & on the other:
A broad arrow & 3 proofs, or inspectors marks.
No makers mark that I can see though, is that odd?

The sheath has the early "teardrop" frog button, which is nice.


Sorry about poor pics will post better when it arrives. These are copied & stitched together from e-pay's page.

If only the seller would actually mail it it would be nice. Estimated delivery was 15th to 22 nd!

He's claiming health issues & promising to ship "Any day now, any day now"!
