Hey guys!

A friend of mine recently got a Soviet sword from a relative.

I managed to identify it as an M1927 Shashka.
Hilt and blade are both stamped 1931 and have various other markings which I am not able to identify. The 91/30 bayonet is missing.

My question now is: Does anyone of you guys know a good homepage that has the various soviet armoury markings available (for Shashkas of course), or could anyone help me identify the manufacturer?

I tried to type the Cyrillic stamped on the blade into google using the alt codes but failed miserably.

If you need any photos just let me know, I'll see if I can pay him a visit again in a few days. :)

Thanks in advance guys! :)

EDIT: I found a photo with the same stampings on the hilt.
