    Looks Romanian, $15 is a great price, bayonet prices have been on the rise as of late. Happy sticking lol

    Yup. Looks Romanian. I think Centerfire used to have them in packs, cheap, not sure if they still do.

    More pictures, sorry for the wait. The numbers on the scabbard are the only marking on the bayonet.

    After studing all your pictures, I agree with furtium. Both the bayonet and scabbard are Hungarian AKM 6X3 Type I. Unfortunately, from a collectors point of view, they are miss-matched. The scabbard is an earlier version as issued to the Hungarian armed forces. The scabbard is also missing both the upper and lower parts of the two piece, two snap hook hanger. The bayonet is a much more common later commercial version which was produced primarily for export sales. This was determined by the differences in manufacturing and materials used, plus the markings or lack thereof. Here is a link to the earlier military issued version and comparison. Mr. B.

    Thanks for the very detailed response, Mr. B.
    That's unfortunate that it's not very rare or collectible, but I still enjoy the look of it and will continue to search for the straps to make it complete albeit mismatched.
