The Hakim Bayonet or Egyptian Bayonet was a bayonet produced in Egypt that looks very similar to the Swedish Bayonet from 1896.
The bayonet was designed for the Hakim rifle and was only produced in Egypt circa 1950. In the late 40’s Egypt was looking to develop their own weapons manufacturing capacity, so they purchased Ljungmann production tooling and some M1896 bayonet tooling. The tools were delivered and setup by the Swedes at the Maadi factory. The date seems to be around 1949 to 1950.
Since the design of the Hakim bayonet is based on the Swedish M1896 bayonet design, it just so happens that it will also fit on the 1896 Swedish Mauser, if the cleaning rod is removed. The Swede M1896 bayonet however does not mount to the Hakim. The reason for this is the muzzle break doesn’t allow the fit.
The FN 49 is a gas-operated, semi-automatic rifle. It’s a Swedish Ljungmann design. It fires an 8x57mm round from a 10-round removable magazine.
The Hakim bayonets aren’t as prevalent as the Swedish bayonets so they tend to go for a little more. Plan on spending about $40-$80 for a Hakim Bayonet that is in good condition.
