Product Description

This early Brown Bess Bayonet is simply marked "XIII" on the rear of the socket.  There may be a small stamping on the blade, it is worn and hard to tell.  Metal surfaces show a dark patina with pitting and wear.  The socket has brass bushings added at both ends, these appear old, they must have been added to make it fit a gun.  I am sure they could be removed.  Bayonet measurements are:  Socket Length- 3 7/8 inches, ID at Mouth-.935, ID at Muzzle-.865, OD Mouth-1.105, OD Muzzle-1.080, Blade Length-15 1/2 inches, Blade width-1 inch, Blade thickness-.400 inches, Shank-1 1/8 inches.  The muzzle to stud measurement is 1 15/16 inches.  Blade fullers are 12 1/2 inches long.  These early (second) style bayonets from the late 1840s and early 1850s are rather uncommon, they were made to fit specific rifles, so seldom fit on a random rifle perfectly.  An interesting bayonet for the collector.  Free shipping.
