Original U.S. Civil War Model 1863 Remington Zouave Brass Hilted Bayonet with Scabbard
Original Item: Only One Available. The Model 1863 Civil War bayonet was designed for the .58 caliber Remington 1863 muzzle loading rifle, also known as the "Zouave Rifle." In official Army documents, this black powder rifle was also known as the "Harpers Ferry Pattern." Between 1863 and 1865, only 12,501 model 1863 Remington rifles were produced.
The 20" single-edged blade has a slight curve and a thick, flat spine that ends in a 140mm double-edged spear point. The blade is in good condition, with only a mild tarnish on both sides of the blade. It has not been service sharpened. The blade bears the marking L. The brass hilt and cross guard marked on the upper edge with its U.S. Inspector's initials of B.H. and C on the guard.
The bayonet comes with its original leather scabbard, which is brass mounted. The scabbard is in good condition, and still has the original brass tip on it. The leather is stiff and has retained the majority of its original finish.
This is an excellent example of a scarce American Civil War bayonet.
