Swiss M1957 Bayonet - sn 408325
Swiss Model 1957 bayonet for the Stg57, manufactured by Elsener Schwyz Victoria (V on ricasso). Military issue. With scabbard and leather frog.
There is a gap in between the base of the blade and the guard, but the blade is not loose. There are a few chips found in the edge of the blade.
Unlike previous Swiss bayonets, the Model 1957 bayonets were numbered separately, rather than when the rifle was issued to the soldier. The soldier's issued M1957 bayonet's serial number is unlikely to match the issued Stgw57 rifle.
