Rather than just a generic “spike bayonet”, this only fits the above mentioned Lee-Enfield rifle of WWII fame.

Bayonet engages the lugs machined into the last 2 inches or so of the barrel and releases with a thumb operated spring catch.

These “pigsticker” bayonets are designed for the #4 Lee Enfield series of rifles, which were used during WW2 and afterward. They were designed and made during, and post WW2. They will NOT fit the #1 Mark 3 Lee Enfield from WW1, or the #5 “Jungle Carbine, as those take different bayonets. These are best carried in a scabbard, attached to the wearer’s belt with a frog. Bayonet, scabbard and frog combinations are available on the internet, sometimes from Commonwealth nations such as Canada and Australia.
The @1 Mark 3 Enfield takes a rather long bladed specialty bayonet, and the Jungle carbine takes a specialty bayonet, which is rare, but reproductions are available,
