ORIGINAL EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND ARGENTINE SHORT SWORD 1st VARIANT for the GN GENDARMERIA NACIONAL, only 800- 1000 made (including 1st and 2nd variant) documented and well described in "BAYONETAS de la REPUBLICA ARGENTINA Book by Albino and Sufriti (picture of the book as reference only). Bayonet derivative.

SERIOUSLY DOUBT YOU WILL FIND ANOTHER ONE. ANY QUESTIONS SEND EMAIL TO ms18911909@gmail.com

General info and condition: Origin Germany/Argentina . These GN short swords were very well made assembled in Campo de Mayo at the GN work shop around 1942-1943. Parts came from the Army Arsenal Esteban de Luca.

This example as well as the example in the book has no markings on the ricasso. The book mentions a 4 digit SN was observed on the ricasso in some examples but seems to be slightly grounded on this blade still maintaining the 4 digit SN on the scabbard. The handle is brass made in one piece with 15 horizontal groves very similar to the Remington Modelo Argentino 1879 bayonet handle. Although it retains the mortise (as a "U"); it has no lock-release button which is one of the key features to identify this sword as it is NOT a Bayonet nor a Side Arm. Steel rivets securing the brass handle. Crosshilt like on the 1891-1909 bayonets but less rounded with hook quillon and muzzle ring. Fuller Blade shaped similar to the 1891-1909 Argentine Bayonet. The short sword is in very fine condition; blade is bright with some patina, slight toning and old grease with NO PITTING, NO NICKS on the edge (might have a microscopic nicks if you feel the edge with your finger), might have very light tiny aging spots specially where the stud from the scabbard sets; light scratches-handling marks. Handle in beautiful shape with some nice pleasant even patina with NO DENTS, NO NICKS just slight handling marks-scratches. The scabbard is in excellent shape with NO PITTING, NO RUST, NO DENTS, NO NICKS, might have very light scratches-handling marks-tiny bruise; however some loos of bluing is noted and a couple of aging spots are noted on the reverse. The throat screws are present. There is also a 4 digit SN. The scabbard fits very nicely as it should. Book picture as reference only.

This extremely hard to find GN GENDARMERIA NACIONAL short sword (ONLY 800-1000 MADE) would make one of the finest addition to you advance Argentine Bayonet-Sword collection!!! Don't miss this oportunity!!!!! Not sure when another will come around!!
