Brazilian ‘1908’ Pattern in Rare steel Mounted scabbard. BAYO 164 - BAYO 164

This is a scarce 1st Pattern Ross bayonet with the stepped back muzzle ring, a smaller muzzle ring diameter and a split annual spring inside the muzzle ring. This acts against the muzzle and ring to provide a rattle free and positive fit. This bayonet fitted the first pattern of Ross rifle but on the introduction of the MK II rifle the bayonet was altered with a larger muzzle ring diameter, no step back on the muzzle ring and the muzzle spring was deleted. This bayonet was made in August 1910 and is so marked on the pommel with the Canadian acceptance mark, inspection stamp and "*-10". The other side is stamped with "Ross Rifle Co Quebec Patent 1907". The pommel and the grips also carry inspection stamps. The slab grips are in very good condition secured with two screw bolts. The push button release works as it should. The bayonet measures 14 3/4 inches overall and has an officially modified clean 10 inch blade. It is contained in its brown leather scabbard with integral frog. The rear is stamped with a faint "1909". This is a very nice complete WW1 bayonet combination in excellent condition. (see Skennerton's item C4 pages 300-303). The price includes UK delivery. 12914.

WWI ‘Ersatz’ Turkish Conversion Bayonet and Scabbard. 19593 - 19593
This is believed to be a Turkish conversion of a German ‘Ersatz’ bayonet, by the addition of a muzzle ring to the grip (see No. 335 of The Bayonet Book by Watts & White which illustrates a similar bayonet minus the added muzzle ring). Ersatz (substitute) bayonets were made in Germany during the early years of World War I, because there weren’t enough regulation bayonets to equip the rapidly expanding army. Ersatz bayonets were manufactured in local workshops resulting in hundreds of variations. The single edged fullered blade is 24 cm in length (38 ½ cm overall) the blade has been re sharpened and is showing signs of age related wear, as is the spine. The steel grips are held with two pins and are displaying the number ‘23838’. The catch functions as it should. The steel scabbard with frog stud retains much of its original paint and has some age related marks. A nice scarce bayonet and scabbard for the collector/enthusiast. The price includes UK delivery. 19593. (Box 3)
