Unless there is evidence that aircraft sight wings or monopod were ever present, you should assume they were never issued. Look for wear on the sight from pivoting the sight wings or dents in the...

The Vetterli-Carcano conversion rifles mount the M1871 Vetterli bayonet, not the M1891 Carcano bayonet. The Italians shortened older M1871 bayonets for issue with the Vetterli-Carcano rifles during...

The Garand was a great rifle, but the Stgw 1944 was light years ahead. The Stgw 1944 could still hold its own on today's battlefield, where the Garand would be totally outmoded.

Looks to be a U.S. M1873 socket bayonet. The steel scabbard body is from a M1873, so the bayonet likely is as well. Definitely a U.S. bayonet. Check yours against the pics and dimensions listed on my...

This is a L1A4 bayonet, on account of the long fuller and plain (as opposed to 'waisted') crosspiece. L1A3 bayonets with the plain crosspiece had the short blade fuller. The "C" marking is common on...
