Spanish CETME Model L Bayonet
Availability: In stock
These original CETME Model L bayonets are in excellent condition and do not appear to have seen much use. The scabbards have a number of marks as a result of long storage.
Replacing the earlier CETME Model C rifle from 1986, the CETME Model L was not well-liked and was reported to have performed poorly in the 1990-1 Gulf War. Later attempts to reduce production costs exacerbated the rifle’s problems, leading to adoption of the Heckler & Koch G36 rifle in 1999.
The blade of the CETME Model L is patterned on the US M4 bayonet, but is 57mm (2.25") longer. It has an 11-groove, green plastic grip and a broad, plain guard secured by two domed rivets. The blade, guard, and pommel are painted black. The scabbard is closely patterned after the M1964 scabbard.
The CETME Model L bayonet was produced by the state-owned Santa Barbara Sistemas factory, under auspices of the Instituto Nacional de Industria (INI).
