I was wondering if any other members here own one of these.



I've got one enroute from Bulgaria as I'm typing this. Will post more pics upon receipt. I got the above pic from Arsenal Bulgaris's website.

I just saw some of those on ebay. Are those for the Type III front sight?

I have one. That picture looks like one of the prototypes because of the lack of paint on the ring. Did you get a good one or one with a minor defect. Expensive though but still cool to have. Edit to say yes to what Krklek said . They are made for Bulgarian AR and AR F As the picture you have is a new post on Arsenal of Bulgaria's page They fit nicely on a classic. I made a deal and got what at a substantially lower price about five or six months ago.

This bayonet is for the AK-47, NOT the AKM. As such, the front sight base MUST have the small hooks under the front sight base or this bayonet will not lock onto the rifle.

There are other members who have this bayonet in their inventory as well as many of the Kalashnikov Bayonet Collector's Group members. The picture you posted is of one of the few prototype bayonets that were released before production started.

The difference between a prototype and a production bayonet is that the prototype does not have the metal painted black, but is "in the white", while the production bayonets have the black painted metal pommel and hilt area, along with the normal inspection stamps from Arsenal Bulgaria.

I have yet to obtain one of these since the asking price is what I consider "kind of steep" :confused: :evil:

would love to see more pics when you can post them.

take care and stay safe,

Kerry

Doesn't the rifle also have to have a 45 degree gasblock also to mount properly?

Looks like if I had waited a couple days I could have saved a $100. K-Var has these listed for sale now in limited quantities. :evil:

Finally got a chance to take some pics of my new bayonet I got from Bulgaria-









I bought it for use on my SAS M-7, it has a Type III FSB, but I found out it has to have a 45 degree gasblock to mount it in addition to the FSB. :evil: :evil: :evil:

I bought mine from K-var after reading about them on the KBC forum. No way I was going to pay the $300.00 that Naiden and Ivan wanted on e-gay for one.
