      The blade sort of looks like the one on an SKS, but they are built in, yes? And anyway they wouldn't have English markings. Exactly what are these markings, what do they say? The mount suggests it is similar to a French Lebel, perhaps Lee-Enfield used this design at some point?

        Kinda looks like an SKS but this blade has a point. ON top of the blade it has RF On the handle it has W7.36/93

          Google is clueless but it does resemble the Lebel in the mount area.

            Its all metal no wood on the handle...I have tried ebay, google kinda interesting. My mom picked it up at auction and gave it to me years ago, she always knew I liked toys.

              Looks alot like the M1874 spike bayonet used by the English/French. However I think it is a French Model 1886 Lebel Bayonet known as the "pigsticker". It has 4 edges right?

                I bet so Hansi.....I thought it was a Lebel, and the further description seals it for me.

                    I believe the 4 edged spike was known as what is called a "cruciform" blade. I have seen them sell in the $80 -$100 range.

                      Wouldn't it be cool to have an 8mm Lebel to put that thing on!
