A great looking example! This bayonet was designed to fit the Modelo Argentino 1909 Mauser Infantry Rifle. It was manufactured in Germany under contract. The 15 ¾ inch long, single fuller straight blade on this one looks great. It is marked to the obverse “Modelo Argentino 1909” and has remnants of the Argentine Crest (this is usually ground off when released from the arsenal as surplus wares) along with “N 9515”. The spine is marked “A” and the reverse is marker marked “Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Co Solingen”. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a sharp point. The blade rates Exc++. It shows age grey, spotting and the common surface scratches throughout. The steel based and black anodized scabbard looks excellent! It retains a nice and dark finish and remains completely dent free. The ball is marked “RA”, the reverse and throat are inspection stamped and the obverse is also stamped “P 2160”. Both throat retaining screws remain intact. The hilt is nickel-silver based. The reverse is marked “RA” (towards the pommel) and the reverse of the crossguard is inspection stamped. The button continues to work well. The wood grip plates show the common pressure marks along with a wee crack. They continue to be tightly secured by two rivets. A great looking bayonet!
