I believe these were used on the mkV sten and on the no.4 as a successor to the pig sticker. How rare are they, and what would be the price for one in very good condition, minus scabbard?

Not all that rare. Shouldn't be expensive with no scabbard.
Thirty quid? Less?

I'm not sure how much help this will be seeing as I'm in the US, but every once in a while I will see one at a gun show. If I recall correctly the prices seem to be lurking in the $60(US) to $100(US) range. Rough estimate that would be around 30-60-ish? quid? I would like to get one someday myself.

Oh, ok. I know someone with one for £25, and I was thinking of getting it to sell on at a profit (I need all the cash I can get now Malvern has emptied my pocket!). It's in really great nick with all the parts moving smoothly and easily. It just has a little bit of yellow paint on the handle and no scabbard.

Think the ebay price shows you what the 'real' price oughta be!
£25 sounds a fair price for one of these without a scabbard - not sure you'd get an awful lot more from someone who knew what they were buying, though.
Lipton is right - the black handled ones tend to fetch higher prices because they are (supposedly) rarer and (supposedly) designed for commando use.
Big time bayonet collectors I have spoken to assure me that the whole 'commando' thing is spurious, though.

You could buy a No.5 or No.9 Bayonet scabbard or even a SLR Bayonet Scabbard, incidently the No.5 rifle bayonet was also used on the Sterling SMG.
