    Hey guys, I am a new member, just added an M-39 and an FR-8 to my mil-surp collection, they are both in great condition, the mosin came with a bayonet, but from what I have gathered the M-39 bayonets are rare, and the pics I have seen they are only half the size of this one, the blade measures 16 inches, I tried to fit it to my Finnish M-27 but it would not fit, just wanted to know if any of you seen a Finnish bayonet like this one.

    The Finnish bayonet should fit both the M27 and M39... All the Finnish rifles M27 to M39 have the same bayonet lug... But I dont think yours is a Finnish bayonet...

    The "long" ones look like this, and the M39 is short with a knife style blade.

    Nice rifles. Looks like the Finn had the wood refinished. The military pine tar finish us usually pretty dull. Bet it is still a great shooter.

    Tikka or Sako?

    Welcome! Those are beautiful rifles, especially the Mosin. Never seen the blade bayonet, that's interesting.

    Thanks for the info guys, I found out that the bayonet is a 1913 Spanish long bayonet, designed for the spanish M1916 mauser style rifle, but it fits the M-39 like it was made for it, so if any of you are looking for a bayonet for your M-39, get a 1913 spanish one :)

    Here's a pic of my Finnish M1939 knife bayonet, mounted to the rifle.

    The scabbard is green leather with a steel protector on the lower reverse.

    Repros can be had for about $75. Real M1939 bayonets typically run as much or more than the rifle itself.

    BUT OBAMA the new king ,says we do not use bayo,s in the american military anymore ,3rd pres debate ,since when???? lol my m4 had a bayo and i did use it more than i cared for.What a pair of knumbnuts we have in white house right now. Like biden,s take ya double barrel fire two shots out the window , then wait for the cops to come and arrest you for unlawful use of a firearm yea ill do that mr biden,lol srry got off topic a moment .nice looking bowie style bayo there .i like it, i took the folding bayo off my m44 made it shoot to the right at 4 o clock , took it off hits dead center can be reinstalled easily.i was opening it out to shoot it still shot to right and low ,removed it the problem went away.Would love a m39 to add to my collection just havent ran across one yet i felt was for me.
