Bericht Turkish M-1935 bayonet
- The Turkish M-1935 knife bayonet was newly made, not converted or modified from older foreign bayonets. This is a strong and heavy bayonet for the Turkish Mauser bolt action rifle. The pommel is brazed to the blade tang and it is stamped with a serial number and the mark "AS.FA" for "Askari Fabrikalar", the Turkish state arsenal located near Ankara which started the production in the year 1929. The locking system [L-shaped piece, spring and round nut] is located as usual on the pommel. The bayonet has wooden grips securd to the blade tang with 2 rivets or 2 screws. The crosspiece is secured in position with 2 rivets. The fullered blade is polished bright. The scabbard is made by steel sheet and it has a mouth piece secured in position with a small screw. Two elastic steel pieces that tension the bayonet blade inside of the scabbard are secured to the mouth piece. => Dimensions: Blade length = 250mm; Overall length = 376mm; Muzzle ring [interior] diameter = 15,5mm; Blade width [at crosspece] = 26mm; Blade thickness [at crosspiece] = 5mm. Four of my pictures will be posted here [two and two together]: ---> Photo 1: TOP => The mouth piece with the small screw, the scabbard and the bayonet. BOTTOM => The bayonet from left has the wooden grips secured with 2 screws and are taken out; note the yellow color where the pommel is brazed to the blade tang and the serial number "36745" inverted. The bayonet from right has the wooden grips in position secured to the blade tang with 2 rivets; note the mark "AS.FA" stamped on the pommel. ---> Photo 2: TOP => The detached wooden grips [secured with 2 screws, the screws are in position and have serated heads], the 2 nuts with a cut for the special screwdriver, 2 rivets [for the crosspiece] and the 3 pieces of the locking system [round nut, spring and L-shaped piece]. BOTTOM: The bayonet has no wooden grips fixed in position, the 2 rivets which secure the crosspiece are taken out; note how the blade is shaped out and the crosspiece [which is moved down by me] cannot advance toward the fuller(s). See both holes [on crosspiece and blade] where the rivets secure in position the crosspiece. ---> NOTE: Normally the crosspiece is secured in position with 2 rivets [fixed right below the crosspiece or in the middle of it] or is brazed to the blade.

- If the bayonet grips are secured to the blade tang with screws, I usually take them out with great care. I'm doing this to clean the blade tang which normally is full of dirt and rust and to clean the inside of the grips too. The blade tang and the inside of the grips sometimes may have interesting markings. I also like to take apart the locking sistem located on the pommel. It's a delicate operation since I don't want to damage the round nut. To protect the round nut I use a fired brass shell case which matches the nut diameter before to unscrew it using a few methods. In most of the cases, the locking mechanism [L-shaped screw, spring and nut] is dirty and rusted and it cannot work normally. After cleaning the system, a drop of gun oil is making it to work like new. Sometimes even the nut or the L-shaped screw may me stamped with various markings. If the small spring is broken, it can be replaced with a similar one or manufactured using a lathe and a simple method. If the locking system is missing completely, it can be made. The L-shaped screw can be made from 2 pieces fixed together, the small spring and the round nut are not a problem. Orita 08/18/08

when you reassemble the grips after cleaning, don't they ever fit looser than before?
and do you have pictures of springs or locking systems you made yourself?

- @ virjinz: The wooden grips will fit back perfectly after cleaning their inside surface and the blade tang. Taking out and reassembling back in position the wooden grips may be a delicate operation since you don't want to damage or break them. Sometimes the wooden grips may be damaged [split, missing areas, etc.] but they can be repaired very nicely.---> "Virjinz", are you familiar with the Italian Carcano 1891TS bayonet??? The "TS" stands for "Truppe Speciali" [specialist troops]. This bayonet has an unique locking mechanism: a small catch piece, a spring and a press catch located on the end of the pommel. There is also a lateral mortise slot cut into the pommel. About 4 years ago I got from a flea-market [paying only $ 5.00] the Italian Carcano 1891TS bayonet with no scabbard, no wooden grips and no catch piece and the bayonet [blade, crosspiece and tang] was rusted too. I was able to make myself the small catch piece, it was a real tough job. I also made aluminum grips secured with screws and to look in a way like rivets. If you're interested to see what I did, I can start later this week a topic with my pictures showing the Carcano 1891TS bayonet, so let me know ... Orita 08/18/08
