  1. As far as I am aware, Russia no longer exports guns to the UK, so no more for the collectors market.
  2. Thanks Gildwiller it is nice, a friend hand picked it for me directly from a shipping container at ryton arms . Ryton was the biggest UK importer of weapons from Russia , it came with the ammo pouches & the sling, I got the bayonet at a later date .
  3. Here's a pic of mine with bayonet fitted & off the gun. Sorry it's not a great pic , but it's so long with the bayo attached to get a closer pic, it's around 5"8 inch long with it fitted .
  4. The one I have is made in Suhl as marked on the slide the same as the one in the video .The serial number dates it to 1942, & has eagle over N proof markings , also the commercial one didn't have the marking forward of the trigger , and production of the 38h ended in April 1945, so there are no post war examples that I am aware of.
  5. Here is my commercial version of the 38H, I didn't realise it was rarer than the military issued pistol
  6. My thoughts exactly fritz, looks too good for old leather, also very complicated system to work, would be better with a standard p08 or a rifle.

  8. Very nice, I haven't seen one of those carriers for ages,! And that kugel is in remarkable condition, I used to have one also, but not as nice as yours.
  9. Stay safe Kenny & everyone else from the shop . , hopefully this virus can be brought under control soon & we can try to get back to normal ( or as close to normal as we can)

    M5 bayonet

    Thanks Gildwiller, it's a nice piece of kit & the build quality is outstanding
  11. I took delivery of this today, it's an M5 bayonet ,it was adopted by the U.S. military in 1953 to replace other bayonets for the M1 Garand rifle and uses the M8A1 scabbard. During the Korean war, the M1 bayonet , which mounted to the M1 rifle, was found difficult to remove while wearing heavy gloves. As a result, the M5 bayonet was designed and issued in 1953. This was a total redesign based on the M4 bayonet used by the M1 carbine. The M5 bayonet looks nothing like the original M1 bayonet, and is the only U.S. bayonet without a barrel mount ring on the crossguard, making it look more lik
  12. The ribbon on the star has been joined together& shortened, looks like it's been worn, the ribbon is almost worn through just above the ring.
