I just recently added two new Romanian 6x4 bayonets.
One being an “A1170” serialized SA contract and a regular Romanian army issued.
Here is pictures of the SA contract bayonet. It came complete with the original strap and hanger.

Here is comparison pictures to my other SA contract bayonet serialized “A1021”. The “C” stamp on the cross guard is only present on “A1021”. From a few sources I have heard that the “C” only has been observed on bayonets within the A10xx range. Can any one confirm their observations in regards to that? Brian perhaps?

Here is pictures of my second rom army issued 6x4. Serialized “1345” and proof marked with the pinkish paint. Its interesting how those paint marks were absent from the SA production run.

This example came from the AoA deal back in 2017. It also came complete with a hanger.

I will dig my SA ones out and take a look.
I expect this came in trade from a SA collector? We are the only 2 that have had any numbers of them.
I have not seen one available in years now. They remain locked up at 5 Recce. But I am trying all the time. I need some, to be able to trade for pebble grip ones and other rarities I still need :-)
I still find the T2 Rony's some of the more interesting bayonets, especially since info is so rare. Why the letters on the scabbards, why did they go back to Type 1's etc.
The quest continues.
