British No.7 Bayonet - WD Marked..

***NOW SOLD***
Array
Description

These scarce bayonets were made for use with the Sten MkV sub machine gun. Originally they were also intended for the Lee Enfield No.4 rifle but after incidents involving rounds hitting the muzzle ring were only issued with this rifle for parade purposes. This bayonet was probably made by Elkington & Co., Birmingham and is one of only 20,000 made by them.

The No7 Mk 1 bayonet was designed in 1944 and a total of only 330,000 were produced. The design was perfected by the Wilkinson Sword Co., who produced 1,000 bayonets in 1944 and subsequent production was carried out by four others makers from 1945 until 1948. The bayonet’s innovative design with its unique swiveling pommel allowed it to be both bayonet and fighting knife with deep finger grooves in the hilt which is made of resin impregnated cloth called Paxolin. 

The swivel pommel retains its original black finish and bears the War Department broad arrow. This is a scarce and highly collectable bayonet in great condition. 

UK shipping included.
