    P14 bayonet question

    I know next to nothing about bayonets, but I know some folks really get into collecting them.

    Well, recently a good friend dropped off some parts, including what I presume to be P14 Enfield SMLE bayonets. Both blade type, and the spike or "pig sticker".



    I'm sure I have seen the spike style bayonet on rifles in pictures, but I'm not familiar at all with the blade type. However markings on the blade types are like: No9 Mk1, and that screams .303 Enfield to me. Sadly I do not own a (.303 British) P14 Enfield or pattern 1914 Enfield rifle. I do have a couple of 1917's though.

    Are these things desirable, or even valuable, or should I just keep an eye out for a friend with a .303 British Enfield, and gift them to him instead?

    they go on no4mk1 or no4mkII rifles, not P14's. the spike runs $15-20, and the knife bayonnet $35-50. ballpark figures.

    Thank you for all the answers guys.

    Think I'm just going to gift them all to my favorite local gun shop.

    I hate to `pop` your information bubble, but. These are samples of the bayonets used on the #4 Mk 1 & Mk 2 Lee Enfields of WW 2 time frame and later. The P 14 bayonet was a long bladed affair similar to the 1903 Springfield bayonet.Robert

    P14 uses the same bayonet as the US Rifle Model of 1917. Just found a P14 here in Afghanistan.
