Original Russian 1891 Mosin-Nagant Rifle Scythe Socket Bayonet - Rare
Original Item: Only One Available. We've never had one of these before but they are listed on Page 48, Item 811 of PAUL KIESLING’s "BAYONETS OF THE WORLD, VOLUME FOUR"
Clearly for the Imperial Russian, later Soviet Moisin Nagant Rifle it is fitted with a locking ring identical to the 1891 Russian Nagant socket bayonet. This bayonet however has an all-steel machined blade that widens towards the front before coming to a wicked point.
It measures 15" overall with a 12" blade. The underside of the rear of the blade bears correct Imperial Russian stampings and maker's logo. This bayonet was speculated for use by "Elite" or "Special" units as per KEISLING. Said to have originally been covered in a blued finish this example has largely returned to a dull steel finish with evidence of blue in the corners.
An extremely rare bayonet, one we've not encountered before!
