I went to an arms fair recently and purchased this Bayonet specifically because it doesn't make sense.

A short description of the images.

Blade markings of Remington manufacture P1913 dated 7/1916 with 
commonwealth broad arrow->crown->AB->A
crown->AB->A repeated next to a bend "proof mark" X.

Not over marked.

No markings on pommel or bayonet lug grove.

Handle is SLAZ42.

Cross guard with abnormally large loop measuring approx 23mm internal diameter.

Blade Length of 430mm

No markings whatsoever on scabbard 

Please help!

i believe what you have is a pattern 1913 bayonet for the pattern 14 [no3] rifle , they were made by remington , winchester and vickers[very early] , they have most of the same specs as a pattern 1907 save the crossguard/muzzle ring

I forgot to add a photo of the crossguard. 


After the shot gun suggestion i looked at other fire arms for this bayonet and found that owen gun and jungle carbine bayonets have a similar arrangement even with the small hole on the bottom half.

Yeah I'm quite confused, either it was rehandle in WW2 hence the slaz 42 handle with a different crossguard put on it or maybe someone had two bayonets and change the well conditioned parts in an attempt to get more cash for it.

Looking at the muzzle ring, it looks like there are slight raised edges inside the ring. I think there was a round shim previously in place which has either been removed or fallen out perhaps.
