I'll just hang on to it. I did just get a call from SS and my disability has been approved {?| but the back pay won't be anywhere near what I had figured.  (u^

I don't sell a lot of guns unless somebody wants them way worse than I do. )L$ Sides I'd hate to sell it and it not last for the new owner. No mag.

 I don't either,  but I have traded a bunch when someone had sumthin I wanted more than what I had.

I have too and I have sold some I didn't want to sell when I really needed money. I still miss those too. I bought a trap door carbine for 300 once. I kept it for about 20 years and somebody offered me about 1,500 bucks worth of guns and ammo, leather etc. I hated to but I had to let it go.

 The only gun I was ever happy to sell was a Spanish assault rifle, a Cetme. Kinda of a forerunner of the H&K German G3. I despised that thang. Some guy offered me big $$$ for it back during the assault rifle ban. Never could get used to a cocking handle on the left. Too much time using a M-14. I kept the bayonet from it though, kinda neat, one of those curved blade Spanish things.

Yep, mine looks like a smaller modern version of that.

I'm not sure exactly what that one was supposed to fit. The measurements were correct for a Colt Root rifle but I dunno. Fella gave me a couple of pretty pennies for it tho. I have another one almost just like it but with a brass guard and it fits a Musketoon.

 Somewhere in the back of my mind I think I recall seeing a bayonet like that called a yatagan. Don't remember what it fit maybe a Turk or Chinese mauser?

The French 1866 Chassepot used a Yataghan. I have seen some with a small muzzle ring and rubber grips but don't know what they fit. That one was unmarked but the other one I have is marked S&K which was a British manufacturer.
