Original German Made Egyptian Remington Rolling Block 1869 Saber Bayonet Converted for .303 Martini-Enfield Carbine
Original Item: Only One Available. Bayonets of this rare type were released in 1976 by the Egyptian Ministry of the Interior, included in a mass of Remington Rolling Block Contract Rifles and Martini Enfield Carbines. In Egypt, to keep bayonets in service, the earlier 1869 Remington bayonets were modified by the installation of a steel replacement cross guard without the traditional hook quillon. The replacement has a complete steel muzzle ring to fit a .303 caliber rifle, and the rear of the brass hilt machined to take the Enfield bayonet stand.
This bayonet is quite impressive, about 27 inches long with a 22 3/4 inch "Yataghan" style saber blade, with a wide fuller on each side. The ricasso of the blade is marked with the A (Scale) C logo of German edged weapon maker Alexander Coppel of Solingen, Germany. This company made large amounts of export bayonets during the 19th century.
A very nice German-Made bayonet that saw long service in Egypt, complete with all steel scabbard, ready to display!
