Title Bavarian bayonet for Mauser rifle, 1871/84 model
Nationality German
Period c 1884
Sold
 (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).

Just to let you know that the spoon came this morning and I am really pleased with it.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
