militaria item Mannlicher-Berthier bayonet, pattern 1 (for Musketoon)
- French
This, essentially an artillery carbine bayonet, would have been carried through the last decade of the 19th century and, in a slightly modified form (wood grip and shortened guard), right through WW2. It also saw service with the Poles in this era. The calibre was 8mm bolt action with a 3-round magazine.

militaria item Gras bayonet
- French
This is the bayonet for the 1874 model single shot bolt action rifle which replaced the Chassepot of 1866, in turn rendered obsolete by the arrival of the Kropatsheck tube magazine rifle in 1877 (both the later rifles used an 11mm brass cartridge).

militaria item Lebel bayonet, model 1886
- French
The Lebel rifle was the first modern service rifle to use a nitro cartridge; all the others of the period still operated with black powder. This classic bayonet would have seen action throughout the French Empire at the end of the 19th century and, of course, in WW1.

militaria item Gras bayonet, 1874 model, modified to fit Gewehr 1888
- French
This was initially made for the French Gras rifle in 1880 by L. Deny of Paris and has all the usual French arsenal/inspectors' stamps, as well as matching numbers to hilt and scabbard. The chief interest of this, however, is the modification of the hilt to accept the model 1888 Mauser service rifle.

testimonials

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
