Imperial German Seitengewehr Model 1898 Pipe Back Bayonet By Weyersberg Kirschbaum, SolingenFor G98 Rifles. BAYO 574 - BAYO 574
This is a nice Seitengewehr M1898 pipeback bayonet for the Mauser M98 rifle which was the principal arm of the German army in W.W.1. The Model 1898 Bayonet was the Imperial German response to the French 1886 Lebel narrow bladed bayonet. The blade is stamped W.K &CIE SOLINGEN (Weyersberg Kirschbaum, Solingen) and carries their trademark. The spine of the blade carries a crow n over RC instead of the usual crown over the date. Anthony Carter in his book German Bayonets states that this is thought to be a repair mark similar to the British crowned BR (Birmingham Repair). The RC stands for ‘Revisions Controlle’ . There is no evidence of any repairs to this bayonet and Carter states that it was probably used when grips were replaced or muzzle rings which had been damaged and were re-sharpened, these being the commonest reasons for bayonets to be re-furbished. The bayonet has a 20 ½” pipeback blade with swell point tip and a central fuller, a steel crossguard with upswept quillon and grooved slab wood grips. The steel pommel release button functions correctly. The scabbard is a steel mounted black leather version with minor dents but no damage. This is a scarce M1898 bayonet with the crown over RC This is the first of these bayonets we have seen. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 574.

Chilean M1910 Police Sidearm Converted From French Gras 1874 Bayonet and Steel Scabbard. BAYO 297. - BAYO 297
This is a nice unusual conversion. It is a Chilean Police sidearm and scabbard issued to the Chilean Police in 1910. These were made up using a section of the blade and the crossguard of a French Gras 1874 bayonet. This was then mated to a solid brass hilt bearing the Chilean Coat of Arms. The blade of the bayonet has been shortened dramatically to 11.25 inches and the bayonet measures 16 inches overall. There is no mortise slot or fixing button and therefore it was only intended as a dress item. The cross guard with muzzle ring and quillon is present. The hilt has number "B1287" stamped on it's side. The bayonet is complete with it's steel scabbard with brass mounts which is in nice condition. These are an uncommon item, (see Martin J. Brayley 'An Illustrated History of Bayonets' book, pages 46 & 48). The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 297. (Box 3)

There is Turkish script to the ricasso, usually denoting the German maker, which in this case is ‘Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Co’. The spine of the blade carries the Turkish crescent ‘moon & star’ as does the quillon. The crossguard carries an indistinct serial number.
