Russian Model 1891
This is the Russian Mosin-Nagant Model 1891 socket bayonet -
Second Pattern - designed for the Mosin-Nagant Infantry Rifle.
These are considered Communist Russian (post-1918) as opposed
to Imperial Russian (pre-1918). The post-1918 type - or
Second Pattern - utilizes an integral push-button/spring latching
mechanism instead of a locking ring as on the
Russian Model 1891 Mosin-Nagant Socket Bayonet (1st Pattern).
The tip of these bayonets - both models - can be used as a screw-driver.
