Bayonets for the Heckler and Koch G3 rifle

 

GERMANY

Early pattern G3 bayonet with grooved wooden grips and Danish  M8 style scabbard with the wood grain finish.

Commonly known as the Rheinmettal G3 these were made by Eickhorn and a similar bayonet with a different pommel was made for the M16 rifle

thanks to Bill porter for the extra info

Totally unmarked I believe this is either a German G3 bayonet or one of their fro export. THe bayonet is completely unmarked

No example as yet

KCB with hilt modifications to allow fitting to the G3 rifle

PAKISTAN

Crudely made G3 bayonet, with rough castings and poorly fitting grips. No markings, but UK SLR pattern blade would probably indicate the Pakistan link

 

 

Interesting scabbard manufacture has middle rather than side seams

Commercial G3 bayonet with no markings to indicate Pakistan manufacture

SPAIN

while not for the G3 as such the later CETME L is very similar

Among the last bayonets made by Toledo before they closed down this is a variation for the Air Force of the CETME L bayonet, it features a distinctive hilt catch similar to the G3 types. THe Toledo mark is clearly stamped on the blade and bayonet shows a low serial number

Naval Issue of the CETME L bayonet has a press button catch and a Navy anchor on the blade. Toledo stamp is not clear on this example
