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 clearly on the concave side of the spoon end.

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


[Firearms : Percussion Longarms : British : 19th Century]

testimonials

Thanks very much for the bayonet. I am very happy, I think your photos of your items are great because nothing is hidden and you can clearly see them. (Unlike some other dealers.) Everything was as you describe, I will be keeping a eye on your site for any further bayonets for my collection.
