Bulgarian AK-47 Bayonet and Scabbard, brown mottled grip, in *Very Good, almost factory* condition.
When the AK47 was originally designed, it was designed without the capability of mounting a bayonet. For its design, the Russians copied features heavily from the Swedish M1914 bayonet. Bulgaria, as part of the Warsaw Pact during the Cold War, copied the Russian 6X2 AK47 bayonet for their use. The Bulgarian AK47 bayonets are distinguished by their mottled brown grip scales and the perpendicular stamped serial number. The scabbard is also Bulgarian manufacture based on the hilt strap being held in place with two (2) rivets, the web hanger design, and the leather knife holding strap with the top strap part pointing left.
This bayonet and scabbard set will make a great addition to your collection! It is a type 1 bayonet with brown bakelite grips and original scabbard.
Serial Number: 0280 is the only marking anywhere on this bayonet or scabbard.
