I had some time today so I thought I would try to post a link to one of my Engineer Carbines. Please read the caption that goes with the photo and you will also see what you can do with the book I just made reference to! Here is the link. Hope it works!

Re: 1891 Engineer carbine and Bayonet for it.

Once again: Here is the photo of one of my Engineer Carbines: http://www.fototime.com/8F975644D651525/standard.jpg

Here is the caption for the carbine photo:
Argentine Coat of arms on this carbine. Serial number A7632, this carbine was built in 1892 by Loewe, shipped to Argentina on August 10, 1893, on the ship, "TIJUCA". Purchased from Recon Ordnance in 2011.

Here is the bayonet link: http://www.fototime.com/B834D65B097D630/standard.jpg
Here is the caption for the bayonet photo:
Bayonet was obtained from Dennis Ottobre (www.eBAYONET.com) in April, 2013. The frog was handmade by myself. It is a replica of a Turkish bayonet frog of the Gallipoli era. The actual original frog was falling apart. I took it apart and traced out the parts on light card stock, then transferred those to leather, cut out the pieces and assembled it by sewing by hand. I realized that the frog looked very much like an Argentine frog and found the Engineers bayonet scabbard fit perfectly in it.
