Why not find a reasonally priced rifle for your bayonet. I've got 6 I would like to move. By the way, your bayo and the matching rifle were mfg. 1894. Bob firstname.lastname@example.org
How much is "reasonably priced"? Because unless I find one dirt cheap, by the time I get brass and dies for it, I'll have a fair amount of money tied up in a gun that's not as strong/safe as later mausers, and not as interesting to me from a historical viewpoint as milsurps used by the major combatants of WWI/II.
I guess it boils down to whether you are a "collector" or "shooter", and what you call dirt cheap. I have 2 Ludwig & Loewe rifles that have all matching serial numbers, (stock, receiver, barrel, magazine plate and cleaning rod), good bores, no cracks but a few 115 year old dings. The stocks have never been touched and have all cartouches. These qualify as Antique. #1 is $250 and #2 $300. One last thought, it's not how much money you put into a collection, but how much enjoyment you get out of it. Best wishes which ever you go.
That's more than I'd be interesting in spending on one at the moment, but thanks anyway.
