The Austrian M1854 Socket bayonet for use with the 13.9 mm. (.54 calibre) M1854 Lorenz rifle. (This bayonet was also used with the M1854/67 Wanzl breech loading conversions) Made in Vienna from 1854 through 1867, the Lorenz rifle was a very accurate rifle-musket that employed a four-groove rifling scheme that had a right-hand twist, it was the first Austrian gun to use the nipple system. It was used in the Second Italian War of Independence in 1859 and the Austro-Prussian War in 1866, and also featured prominently in the American Civil War. The M1854 bayonet is easily identified by the helical mortise and flattened cruciform blade profile. The socket length measures 78 mm with a 455mm blade.

This is a socket bayonet that dates back to the mid-19th century, specifically between 1840 and 1855. It was designed for use with the India Catch and comes complete with a brown leather scabbard. Indian socket bayonets underwent a transition during this period, shifting from the earlier style to the locking ring style, which was consistent with Britain’s adoption of the pattern 1853 bayonet1. The overall length of this bayonet is approximately 19.75 inches, with a blade length of 15.75 inches and a socket length of 3 inches. The blade bears the maker’s name; “S. Hill”.

This is a bayonet unique to South Africa. The socket is virtually identical to the British No.9 bayonet but with a blade from the UZI sub machine gun.

The bayonets were intended for use by the South African Local Defence Force Commandoes, see Skennerton’s book British & Commonwealth Bayonets, page 370, item 6. The bayonets were issued in both reinforced fibreglass scabbards and as in the case of in our example steel scabbards from UZI bayonets. The bayonet has an excellent clean blackened 6 ¾ inch single edged blade with a ribbed release button pommel. The scabbard has the original black paint on the scabbard and there are no dents in it.

M84/98 German bayonet 2nd model (The first pattern of S84/98 or M1884/98 bayonet was the 1871/1884 bayonet adapted so it could be used on the Gewehr 98. This was replaced in service by the 1898/05 bayonet. However during World War I the S84/98 began to be produced again under the designation S84/98 II. The German Imperial Army used this bayonet in World War I as a way of conserving scarce resources The S84/98 III was production of the S84/98 bayonet during the late Weimar period and during the time of Nazi Germany. The hilt has clean wooden grips and a flash guard and are held to the tang with two screw bolts . The pommel has a mortise slot and locking bolt which secures it to the rifle nose cap The crossguard has no quillon or muzzle ring.

WWI British ‘P13’ Mk1 Sword, Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 174. - BAYO 174
This is a great example of the ‘P13’ bayonet, which although designated ‘P13’, fit the ‘P14’ rifle and was not introduced until ‘1916’. It is marked to the blade with ‘1913’ over ’11 16’ (November 1916) and ‘Remington’ in a circle. The other side of the blade carries British inspection stamps.

*RARE* British Experimental Bayonet, For The Farquhar-Hill Automatic Rifle. Sn 10880:39. - 10880:39
A British Experimental Bayonet for the Farquhar-Hill Rifle (no scabbard). These bayonets were made by shortening an existing 1097 pattern bayonet and re-shaping the tip for the trials in 1924 but very few were done at the time. We believe to be a later conversion and would still fill a gap in any serious British collection. The bayonet is a shortened 1907 pattern bayonet. It has a single edge blade with fullers that reach the tip. The tip is shaped. It has a straight cross guard with muzzle ring. The ricasso is stamped on one side with the War Department 'Crows Foot' and inspection marks and on the other it has "1907 8 15 Remington", (August 1915). The bayonet has slab wood grips and they are secured with two screw bolts. The pommel has a push button release. The bayonet has a 7 ½ " blade and is 12 ½ " overall. It has no scabbard. (see page 203 in Skennerton's British & Commonwealth Bayonets Book). The price includes UK delivery. Sn 10880:39. (Box 3)

*Scarce* Sabre Bayonet for the Model 1859 Sharps Rifle with Scabbard and Leather Frog. 21421. - 21421
Sharps rifles are a series of large-bore, single-shot, falling-block, breech-loading rifles, beginning with a design by Christian Sharps in 1848 and ceasing production in 1881. They were renowned for long-range accuracy. By 1874, the rifle was available in a variety of calibres, and it was one of the few designs to be successfully adapted to metallic cartridge use. There were at least three different bayonets for the Sharps. Two different Sabre bayonets and the standard triangular bayonet. Two of the major manufacturers of the sabre bayonet were; Collins & Co, Hartford Connecticut and Ames MFG.Co Chicopee Massachusetts. This example has a 50 ½ cm blade (62 ¼ cm overall) and a brass ribbed hilt stamped ‘44’. The blade is in good overall condition with areas showing its age. The scabbard is leather and intact. The throat is brass coloured as is the chape *later replaced*. The rare frog is in very good order with brass and stitching intact. The price for this very scarce set includes UK delivery. 21421.

In the 1902 financial year, 375 each of the short and long experimental models were made for trials. The short model was a trials version of the eventual patt. It was the short version that was eventually decided upon for introduction with the new short rifle. Provisionally approved on 14th December 1902, the pattern 1903 sword bayonet was announced in the list of changes para, 11716 with an approval date of 19th December.

*Scarce Wrongly Dated 1918* U.S. Model ‘1917’ Remington Bayonet and Scabbard. 21432. - 21432
This is a nice clean ‘P1917’ dated ‘1918’ by Remington in error. Remington mistakenly used the manufacture date 1918 in place of the pattern designation. The bayonet should be stamped ‘1917’ .This error was soon rectified and 1918 stamped ‘P17’ bayonets are scarce. The bayonet made in ‘WWII’ for the ‘P17 30-06’ rifle. It can be differentiated from the ‘P13’ which it resembles by the markings on the blade. This example is marked to the blade with ‘1918’ over Remington in a circle, meaning manufacture by ‘Remington’ (founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington (as E. Remington and Sons) in Ilion, New York, it was one of the oldest gun makers in the US and claimed to be the oldest factory in the US that still made its original product) who made over 2 million bayonets. The other side of the blade carries the flaming grenade and eagles head over ‘U, S’. and inspection marks. The grips are wooden *with minor age related marks* with two grooves cut across them which is where it resembles the ‘P13’ and was interchangeable with the ‘P13’ except for the ‘P17’ rifle being 30.06 instead of the British .303. The scabbard which is solid with stitching intact is the standard American ‘P17’ version with belt hooks attached and U.S. government inspector mark "EJB" to the rear. These bayonets were often issued to the Home guard in WWII. See ‘Skennerton’ item B289 page 236. A scarce piece, for the collector. The price includes U.K. delivery. 21432. (US Bayonets)
