    I have several items...bayonets,holsters,etc with a stamping BK in a circle or a square. I should know this but never took the time to find out.:confused:What does this stand for? Thanks in advance. Dick.

    If the items look like AK stuff, chances are the circled BK is "Vojna Kontrola" = military inspection. The cyrillic letter for V looks like B.

    I believe the mark is Yugo..one of my Yugo M57 holsters has the BK mark. Dick

    It is. The deciphered reading above is in Serbo-Croatian.

    It is and will forever remain an AK bayonet from (former) Yugoslavia. See above. Later.

    The bayonet is for a Yugo M48 Mauser. Regards. Dick

    If so, my mistake. BK being BK, I saw the letters on the ricasso but could not make em out.
