Title Rolling block Mexican Remington bayonet, 1899 model
Nationality American
Period c 1899
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This was a contract piece for the Mexican government and also is the same bayonet used by the US Navy on the Lee bolt action. The Mexican rifle was a 7mm rolling block action single shot weapon.

The blade length is 21cm. It has fruitwood grips with a little age bruising and cracking, especially to the front plate. The stitching on the leather belt loop is still intact. There is very little trace of any finish on the scabbard, which also has some scarring from old age rust spots scattered throughout.

I would describe this as a class two condition piece. However, its relative rarity makes up for the condition.
