Designed to be used with the Russian M1891/30 Mosin-Nagant rifle, this was the standard bayonet of the Russian infantryman in WWII. The M1891/30 was an updated version of the original M1891 Mosin Nagant rifle. Like the rifle, the bayonet received an upgrade, and was altered from a locking-ring bayonet, to one that was held in place with a pressure stud.
An entirely thrusting-oriented bayonet, the shape of the M1891/30 bayonet ensures that piercing wounds are deep and highly likely to be fatal in short order. Should an enemy soldier initially survive such an attack, the quadrangular wound created by this bayonet would prove very difficult to treat and heal. Wounds such as this are still problematic to modern surgeons with contemporary equipment, nevermind the difficulties that a WWII field medic would encounter with his comparatively rudimentary kit.
This replica M1891/30 Mosin-Nagant bayonet is crafted from darkened steel. It has a functional pressure stud.

It’s soviet hardware alright. It functions fine, but it is more expensive than the gun its meant to be used for.
