As noted, these original Mosin Nagant M91/30 bayonets are all authentic Russian military surplus pieces. They were originally issued alongside Mosin Nagant M91/30 service rifles that would have been issued to ground forces in the Imperial Russian army, the Workers' and Peasants' Red army and the Soviet army. Other users of the Mosin Nagant M91/30 include Afghanistan, China, Finland, Iraq, Poland and many others. Though the tip have worn dull, all of our Mosin Nagant M91/30 bayonets remain in excellent condition, still perfectly capable of being mounted to your rifle and giving it a correct appearance.
The Mosin Nagant M91/30 bayonet is a spike bayonet, meaning unlike a knife-style bayonet, it is unable to be wielded by hand. Spike bayonets are designed specifically for spearing and stabbing motions and are capable of inflicting wounds that are much harder to care for than those typical of the slashing motions associated with knife-style bayonets.
Having said that, each Mosin Nagant M91/30 bayonet is constructed entirely of steel and features an overall length that measures approximately 19 1/2 inches long with a blade that measures 17 inches long. Additionally, each bayonet includes an individual serial number.
