The AK-47 Early Style Bayonet is the first generation of AK-47 bayonets made by the Soviet Union. This early style AK-47 bayonet would be period correct for any replica AK-47 style rifle. Officially designated the 56-X-212 and adopted by the Soviet Union in 1951 it remained the standard AK-47 bayonet until 1959.
The AK-47 Early Style Bayonet is one of the more rare AK-47 bayonets. Originally adopted in 1951 and only used until 1959 there were far fewer versions of this bayonet produced than any other AK-47 bayonet.
When this AK-47 Early Style Bayonet was adopted the Soviet Army was only producing milled receiver versions of the AK-47. This makes this bayonet ideal for use with any milled AK-47 rifle that is patterned after the original Russian style AK-47.
After this bayonet was replaced with the AKM Type 1 bayonet all future AK-47 bayonets were dual purpose bayonets that also functioned as fighting knives.
