Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svg800px-Flag_of_CzechoslovakiaThis bayonet is the correct one for any German G33/40 Mauser. The bayonet superficially looks similar to the one for the K98 however the blade edge is reversed and the ring has been machined off. These bayonets were manufactured by Brno between 1940 and 1942. This one is marked dot on the bayonet and dot42 on the sheath.

This is my DOU marked Mauser Kar-98 Infantry Rifle in 7.92x57mm caliber. It was manufactured in 1943 by the Waffenwerke Brunn., A.G. in Czechoslovakia. It’s all matching except for the stock lower so I am pretty happy to have it. It will stay with me until I can afford a nice German made mid-war K98.
