SCARCE, Portuguese Model 1885 Guedes (Kropatschek) Bayonet & Scabbard. Sn 17201:2 - 17201:2
This is a Model 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 fullered blade is 18 ½” length and measures 23 ½” overall. The blade has just staining consistent with age. There is a small inspection mark on the blade and ‘GG291’ 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 has a frog bar & ball end. Sn 17201:2
