    Default Mondragon Rifle Spade Bayonet

    Any bayonet collectors out there know what the rarity and value of one of the Mondragon Rifle Spade Bayonets might be. I have searched the internet and can't find any sales for the bayonets listed. The last listing I can find is on two rifles and they sold for about $27,000 each at a auction house in N.H. in 2007 or 2008. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Mike,
    I told you what the last one sold on fleabay went for when I ID'd the bayonet for you on Sunday. Not too many have been sold since.

    Both the Mondragons at Julia's were without bayonets. Both were "Air Service" rifles and command a much higher price. One was in 7mm Mauser and had the 30 round magazine, the other was a Swiss version in 7.5 Swiss and had a matching 10 magazine. The bayonets are rarer than the guns and the traditional bayonet with quillon is rarer still. In fact there is only one that is known.
