Has a wooden stock and a sprung mechanism. When the end of the mechanism is pressed against something, it retracts. I've been unable to find any markings, but I can guarantee that this is a 100% genuine period training device. Please note: this was never made to fire anything, not to be an offensive weapon, doesn't contain anything harmful or dangerous, was never made to have a bayonet attached and doesn't, nor does it have a spike or a part with a point.It is simply a sprung mechanism on a wooden stock. Would be a super addition to any collection! Condition report: stock has wear, marks, surface scratches, some fingernail depth indentations and has a beautiful patina. The metal has some light surface rust in areas and pitting. Personally, I believe the above is added character and I'm sure that the majority of you will agree.
See my other militaria currently for sale and I add new items on a regular basis. Although, it may take slightly longer due to its size. Feedback says it all really. My descriptions are accurate as possible but please feel free to ask on anything not mentioned or for more pictures. I appreciate that cash can be a issue!
