Bayonet dating dating a cancer sign
The Albanian SKS is dated using the numbers on the left side of the receiver. Note after the serial number there is a dash and then the last two digits of the year.
I do not guarantee that this is 100% accurate because as we all know, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH THE SKS.Guard marked M3s were made from November 1943 to July 1944, and would normally be only found in the M8 scabbard although some of the very early production MAY have been issued in the M6.The changeover from the M3 knife to the M4 knife-bayonet and the change from the M8 to the M8A1 both occurred in July 1944 and the M4 should normally be found in the M8A1 scabbard.I have a ' US M3 Camillus' blade marked M3 I don't have a scabbard for it, and am looking for one... Greetz Three things make for a correct WW2 M8 scabbard 1. To quickly summarize, the blade marked and dated M3 knife was manufactured from March 1943 to September 1943.I don't think an M6 would be correct for this M3 (not sure though), so i've been looking for an M8 scabbard. The M8 scabbard was first delivered in July 1943 so the dated M3 was issued in either the M6 or M8 depending on whether it was early or late.
