Fellow Enfield collectors my friend who sold me the M4t Enfield Sniper found this and believes it will fit on the mark 4 T barrel 
I am not sure so I hope you experts can help me on her identification 

Hope the pictures enlighten us

The bayonet is for the No1 MKIII rifle and will not fit a No4

While this No7 MkIL bayonet was intended for use with the MkV Sten Submachine Gun, it will also fit the the No4Mk1 Enfield rifle.

Thank you Thad for your reply. it helped me that’s for sure.


Thank you Mike for your post if I remember correctly one of your bayonets is now mine 😊
However I appreciate the pictures & your post   😉


Is that 16” worth $300 ? What is the demand on a Number 1 Mark III.  ?

More commonly encountered Pattern 1907 without the hooked lower quillon.

British makers include the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield; and the following British government contractors:

—James A. Chapman
—Remington Arms Co. (USA contractor)
—Robert Mole & Sons
—Sanderson Bros. & Newbould Ltd.
—Vickers Ltd.
—Wilkinson Sword Co.

I know of one that has been sitting in a glass case for at least 5 years now with a $225.00 price tag on it and it has yet to sell but, out here in Phoenix Arizona,  it's not going to...

Its an interesting bayonet, looks to have had the original makers mark scrubbed then Wilkinson over stamped during a refurb in Aug 1917.
OTC is Officer Training Corps
BDS would be the college or university, the numbers probably its rack number.
From what I gather definitely a keeper, rare to find an OTC bayonet
shoot em if you got em

Ditto ^^^^
It kinda looks like (Chapman scrubbed) to my poor eyesight.
A rear photo of the (cross guard,quillon) would be interesting if possible.
$300.00 with the scabbard & frog not unreasonable IMO.
Cheer’s.
Anyone seen the Tardis Box anywhere? 🤨

I would not pay that much for that bayonet - more in the realm of the MOLE, Vickers, early RFI or Remington for that price. But some collect them based on being unit marked. 

Oh and you are welcome - and the above is just my opinion.

Gentlemen 
Thank you for the replies 
Since this won’t fit my current Enfield sniper I have told the owner that I will pass hopefully it goes to someone who can use it

the 26 looks like a refurb date , thinking the clearing hoole was added as the early ones lacked that ,the scabbard is the early one with the almond shaped stup the later had the round button , very common for WWI bayonets , it looks a very nice set from the photos , not sure on the $300 - that depends a lot on current markets , ive not been in the buying mode for quite a while but was a tad high back when i was , yet finding a complete blade scabbard and frog in that condition could be a challenge
