Default Big knife, little bitty gun

I went to a swap meet yesterday. Got to talking to a guy and he asked me to look at some items. He called his wife and she brought them over. He wanted to know about this bayonet. I told him I had no clue but I'd give $10 for it. I went to a guys table and he had this little 32auto for sale. I ended up trading for the
Ortgies pistol and 35 rnds of ammo. I've never handled one of these before but it looks to be in pretty good shape.
HDHIC, I'll post a pic as a reply.

Thought it might be a Mauser bayonet at first, but I can't remember seeing one with a cross-guard like that. Definitely worth 10 bucks, though lol.

The bayonet looks much like a Japanese bayonet my Dad brought back from WWII.

I think the bayonet belongs to a Japanese Arisaka Type 30 rifle. I have one just like it that has been passed down from family.

It appears to be a Type 30 Bayonet for the Arisaka Rifle, either Variation B or D depending on if the bottom of the cross guard is rounded or square. B is rounded, D is square.

That bayonet sure is worth more than $10. Wish I could run across a deal like that. Seems most milsurp items have taken a jump in price lately.

Could be either an British or American bayonet for the P14 or Model 1917 rifles. Would need to see the markings on it to be sure.

I guess I misread the op, because I looked closer at the bayonet pic and I see the pistol in the pic. I assumed you traded the bayonet for the pistol. What did you trade for the pistol?

They are good little guns for their age. Knew a Marine WO that carried one as an EDC many years ago. As an aside the local gun shop just sold one for parts https://www.gunbroker.com/item/783582461

Nice score on the Ortgies. Can't comment on the bayonet as they hold little interest for me.

Really like the Ortgies pistols; the unique design, fine early German engineering and quality machining, popular if short history. I'm looking to complete my tri-fecta with a .32 and .380 to match the condition of my ca. 1923 .25acp

The striker seems to be the problem with the Ortgies.
Dick


the bayonet looks to be for a model 17.

The Marine WO that I mentioned had the same problem with his, the leg on the striker broke. Had my Father-In-Law weld it and then I filed it down to fit.

That was my thoughts. Not Jap, but U.S. or Brit.

You can keep the pistol, but I will double your money on that bayonet! Seriously, nice finds.

I found out it was a type30 bayonet. I checked it on a Japanese forum. I believe it was produced in China close to the end of the war. The hook was cut off square. Here is a pic of the arsenal mark. Thanks for the replies. HDHIC
