Portuguese Model 1885 Guedes (Kropatschek) Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 432 - BAYO 432
This is a nice 1885 Guedes bayonet, often referred to as the Kropatschek bayonet & is based on the Austrian M1873 bayonet. These bayonets are not common in the collector's market. These bayonets were originally intended for the Guedes-Castro rifle but when Portugal decided to adopt the 8mm Kropatschek bolt action rifle, the bayonet was used instead of the new rifle (see Brayley 'An Illustrated History Of Bayonets' pages 182 & 183). The clean fullered blade is 18 ½” length and measures 23 ½” overall. There is a small inspection mark on the blade (illustrated) and feint ‘C437’ on the cross guard which has the correct muzzle ring. Its slab wood grips are secure and have just bumps and bruises to be expected. The steel pommel has the correct bayonet release button which functions correctly. The steel scabbard carries the number ‘Y110’ near to the throat. The scabbard has no dents and has a frog bar & ball end. BAYO 432
