German Seitengewehr M1871 Sword Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 268 - BAYO 268
This is a nice original example of a German Seitengewehr M1871 bayonet and scabbard. The bayonet was the standard Infantry bayonet for the M1871 Mauser Rifle (see page 113&116 of White & Watts ‘The Bayonet Book’). The bayonet has a ribbed brass hilt with birds head pommel and push button catch with steel flat spring. It also has a steel re-curved cross guard with muzzle ring and swept quillon. The blade which is fullered carries the makers name of P.D.LNESCHLOSS SOLINGEN on the ricasso. The back of the blade carries W74 over a crowned inspectors stamp. The cross guard carries a regimental number H18.R9.13 which has been struck out together with a later number R.AT.2.78. The bayonet is complete with its original brass mounted brown leather scabbard. The top throat carries an illegible regimental number which has been deleted followed by L.RAT.2.100, a regimental number. The throat and chape also carry several crowned inspectors stamps as does the leather next to the seam. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 268

British 1853 Pattern Socket Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 267 - BAYO 267
This is a late production 1853 pattern bayonet made at Enfield in 1874 and is dated on the blade 1/74 (January 1874). There is also a feint inspection mark and the number 501. These bayonets were in use from 1853 until 1878, long after the introduction of the Snider breech loading system in 1866. The scabbard is the second pattern in use from 1860 to 1866 with the frog stud, marked with the number 140 attached to the locket as opposed to the earlier version where the frog stud was attached to the standard leather body. See Skennerton's item B145, pages 105-109). The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 267

British Trials Z2E1 Bayonet With Shortened Blade, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 265 - BAYO 265
This is one of the Z2E1 trials bayonets that has had the blade reground making it 10mm shorter than the normal length. Skennerton shows one as item B 318 and states that although there are some claims that these were a shorter version, it is more likely that some suffered damage to the points and at a later stage were reground to make them saleable on the commercial market. All other features remain the same as the standard bayonet. This bayonet carries the X2E1 designation stamped underneath the tang along with a serial number 7290. The catch on the pommel is the larger version and the steel scabbard is correctly marked to the mouthpiece with X1E1. See Skennerton item B318 on Pages 256 and 257. The price for this bayonet includes UK delivery. BAYO 265

British 1876 Pattern Martini Henry Rifle Socket Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 264 - BAYO 264
This is a nicely marked 1876 pattern Martini Henry rifle socket bayonet with original British markings to the blade and later Indian script to the 2 other sides of the blade. The British markings are 506 over R followed by the broad arrow over W.D.. an inspectors mark and 8 83 denoting manufacture in August 1883. The bayonet has then obviously been issued to Indian troops later in its service life. The scabbard is the mark II with 2 rivets in the leather body to hold the internal spring. See Skennerton item B187 on Pages 145 and 147. The price for this bayonet includes UK delivery. BAYO 264

British 1858 Pattern Artillery Sword Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 262 - BAYO 262
British 1858 Pattern Artillery Sword Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 262 This is an unusual variation or the 1858 pattern bayonet which has a blade length of 18 inches instead of the 22.75 inches which was the normal blade length for this bayonet. The bayonet is marked on the blade P.D.L.which is for the Solingen firm of P.D. Luneschloss. The only other mark on the bayonet is the number 49598 stamped into the end of the pommel. The bayonet could be a volunteer bayonet as the Solingen trade made many bayonets who provided their own uniform and in many cases their own rifle and bayonet. These bayonets are usually stamped withthe makers trade mark but no government inspection or other marks as in this case. The overall length is 23 inches with a blade length of 18 inches and a muzzle ring diameter of 22mm. The scabbard is steel mounted black leather and is 18 ¾ inches long. The fullers do not run to the end of the blade so it is not a cut down version for cadet use. See Skennerton on page 116. This is a scarce variant. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 262

VERY EARLY, Canadian Ross Rifle Company MK1 Bayonet & WW1 1916 MK 2 Leather Scabbard With Integral Frog. BAYO 460 - BAYO 460
This is a very early 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 "6-09" (June 1909 date) making this a very early example as the MK1 was only made from 1909-1910 whereas the MK 2 was produced from 1911-1917. The other side is stamped with "Ross Rifle Co Quebec Patent 1907". The slab grips are in very good condition secured with two screw bolts. The push button release works as it should. The grips have small inspection marks and one is impressed ‘K830’. The bayonet measures 15” overall and has a 10 ¼” blade. It is contained in its brown leather scabbard with integral frog. The tip of the scabbard is dated ‘1916’ and has ‘MK’ designation (most likely MK 2). This is a very nice complete bayonet combination in excellent condition. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 460

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

EXTREMELY RARE, WW1 1915 Imperial German Waffenfabrik Mauser Model 1898/05 (New Pattern) G98 Mauser Rifle Butcher Bayonet With Quillon Ground Off & Green Painted Scabbard. BAYO 456 - BAYO 449
This is an unusual S98/05 (new pattern) with flash guard made in 1915. However the quillon has been ground off probably due to it being damaged or broken leaving a still serviceable bayonet. The 14 ½” butcher blade carries Mauser manufacturer detail (illustrated) and the spine ‘crown over W 15’ (1915 date mark). According to Anthony Carter in his book ‘German Bayonets The Models 98/02 & 98/05’ Mauser only produced this model of bayonet from 1916. Only 2 models dated 1915 had been recorded when the book was written making 1915 dated Mauser bayonets of this type extremely rare. This implies that production started very late 1915. The grooved wood grips are undamaged. The scabbard is the standard steel version which has been painted green. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 449
