This is the short model sidearm for the Feuerwehr, introduced about 1936, for wear by senior NCOs and was worn as a 'walking out' weapon, with a Feuerwehr portepee tied to the belt frog. The belt buckle would have been the standard Gott Mit Uns variety surrounding a marching swastika. There are no maker's marks.

This 20cm blade has no swage and a somewhat wider fuller than the other more frequently encountered version.

This has a steel hilt, not the more commonly encountered pot metal type, which retains some 95% plus original EPNS finish. The scabbard paintwork has old refinish to it. Both bakelite grips are perfect. There is some minor bubbling of the EPNS finish to both sides of the blade near the point.

testimonials

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.

The Lee Metford bayonet and scabbard arrived today. I am delighted with its condition and also with the prompt service.
