That's an Uzi bayonet with the scab having the generic S.A. frog.

I tried to grab the pic but failed. https://www.northridgeinc.com/product-p/bay-87.htm

The bayo with the leather scabbard is a modified FAL model A. The other one also looks like a modified model A.

Whatís the blade length on the bayo you think is model B?
