Two NVA AKM bayonets

Recommended Posts

Found these while cleaning the garage during my brief unemployment. According to the “World of Bayonets” site, they are a Type I transitional (1979-1985) and a Type II.

Thanks! I remember there was a surplus place in Raleigh NC called GI Locker that sold USSR and East German militaria (and they had a ton of it), pretty sure I got these there in the early 90s. I still have their business card and in the days before GPS, there was a hand drawn map on the back so you could find them!

Seemed like most of the equipment, uniforms, and insignia of the NVA ended up in the US in the early 90s! I found enough stuff while cleaning my garage to fill a tote.
