Nice blades. Sure that the Swedish one you mentioned is not a Swiss blade? Looks like a Wenger.

The "Argentine" bayonet is a Yugoslavian M1948. These were used with the M1948 Short Rifle.

As C3shooter and safdeman indicate, the "Swedish" bayonet is Swiss, for the Stgw. 57 assault rifle. The Stgw. 57 had a very long service life, remaining in production from 1958-1983. Blade blanks were supplied by both Victorinox and Wenger, for assembly at the State arms factory, Waffenfabrik Bern.

I was thinking of modifying the Swedish for a good hip knife. Great blade and frame. Just need to decide of a style.
Just thinking about it at this point.
I am open to ideas.

Yes, thank you. That does look closer to what I have. I need to get out to my Brother's and take a picture of it for you. Don't know why I never thought of looking up any information about it until now.

Get ye to Walmart and pick up a copy of the Shotgun News. Lots of companies sell bayonets through ads in that magazine. (Of course, after reading that publication, you may end up wanting a machine gun or something... )
