Title Bavarian bayonet for Mauser rifle, 1871/84 model
Nationality German
Period c 1884
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Originally for the 1869 model, Werder single action, falling block breech loader, in its day actually a better rifle than the model 1871 Mauser, a single shot bolt action weapon. It was shortened and modified for the Mauser rifle of 1871/84, the first magazine rifle of the German army, which carried a tube magazine under the barrel.

There are signs of sharpening to both faces of the blade and the guard is punched with Bavarian unit markings (see photos).
