M1895 No.1 Old Model (O.M.) Bayonet

To be fixed on the M1895 No.1 O.M. Mannlicher Carbine

During the First World War a bayonet got issued to be mounted on the Carbine No.1 Old Model. The reason behind this was that the Cavalry of other countries got issued with bayonets during WW1.

When the Dutch find out that it became a standard to also equip a cavalry unit with bayonets, they made a very simple & cheap discussion; cut down the existing M1871 Beaumont bayonets and make them fit the new M.95 Carbine. The original bore of c.17,5 mm was bushed to 14 mm.
