Default RIA 16 Inch Bayonet

Hi guys,

I'm looking for some advice on a bayonet I want to buy from my uncle whose father left him a 16 inch RIA bayonet with a great condition leather scabbard. He showed it to me this week and I about passed out at how awesome it was. I know a picture is worth a thousand words (or dollars). But I wanted to give him an honest offer for it. I was going to say $300? I should have taken pics it was so nice!

Matt

I personally think your offer number is very fair to a family member going off of how you describe it.

It's a fair offer a nice original scabbard can sell for $150 My 1909 RIA bayonet cost me $185 at the CMP years ago.

Good Luck,
broom
