Krag Bayonet part
« on: January 20, 2020, 04:40:32 am »
Here is hoping

I purchased a Krag Bayonet and need the cross pin keeper assembly with spring and button
Any chance someone has an old beater for a donor ?

Dusty Tagalon and Niederlander both shot the ring off of one IIRC.  :o

You might check with them.

Yes, it unscrews, but I recommend you use Kroil on it for a few days.  They've been on there a long time!  By the way, I compared the Krag button to the 1917 bayonet catch, and it looks very similar.  I don't really want to pull my Krag bayonet apart to try it, though.  May be worth a try.

So far appears the part is made of unobtanium  :-\

I've bid on a few donor candidates only to be snipped in the last hour minutes. Krag Bayonets in fact 03 and 07 bayonets seem to be hot collectors' right now.

Almost any Bayonet , US , British , German  Etc., are bringing premium prices

I plan on attending the Md Antique Military show [mid March] again the year so if you haven?t found your part be then maybe I can find it there. Still got a pile of old stuff that I?m still trying to get rid of from last year.

That would be great , much appreciated

The best show we have , other all the black gun stuff, is the Winter Melbourne show ( that is where got the Constellatory Krag. ;D )

I saw a box of cut down 05 Bayonets ( WW2 & post Garand  prolly imports back from Greece )  and a few  odd foreign examples ...nothing Krag

Missed out  (well out bid ) on a shortened reground Krag bayonet I wanted to harvest the part from....
I just had set # I could pay before it was just stupid money for the part.

Somewhere there is a donor  :-\
