Title Lovell's pattern spring clip for 1842 series muskets
Nationality British
Period c 1840s
Sold

This is the spring clip for the Lovell's bayonet, which fits under the muzzle cap of the weapon. I know it fits both the carbine and rifle, as I had an 1852 rifled sea service musket with bayonet and this clip could be used on that. This is ex-Eton College armoury.

I have hand cleaned this and it is in perfectly serviceable order, somewhat discoloured with age, as you would expect, ready to mount on a musket. This example has the 'P' bench mark struck lightly on the concave side of the spoon end.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.
