No5 Mk1 Knife Bayonet
Price: £220

Excellent Condition

"Commission Sale"

Knife bayonet for use on the 9 mm. Sterling Mk4 L2A3 submachine gun produced for commercial export by Sterling Armaments Co.

The Sterling Mk4 was widely exported, with 400,000 being produced before production ceased.

Sterling went bankrupt in 1988. Loved for its reliability, the Sterling first entered British service in 1944 (as the Patchett machine carbine) and served British forces until 1994.

Closely patterned on the No5 Mk1 bayonet, these commercial examples were produced for Sterling by Hopkinson Ltd.

Early examples used the No. 5 blade and had wood or plastic grips secured by screws or rivets, with screw spacing identical to the Military No. 5 Mk. I bayonet.

Later examples, used the L1A1 blade and had riveted sheet steel grips, with rivet spacing identical to the L1 Series bayonets.

This is the an early example based on the No5 Mk1 bayonet, with wooden grips & screws.

The hilt and crosspiece are finished in Suncorite black paint. The blade is polished bright.

The scabbard is identical to the No. 5.

These will fit both the Sterling L2A3 SMG & Le Enfield No5 Mk1 Jungle Carbine

Swords, Bayonets & Knives Are Only Sold To Adults Over 18.
