Original U.S. Pre-WWI M1892 Bayonet and Scabbard for Springfield Krag-Jørgensen Rifles - dated 1897
Original Item: Only One Available. These are something that we have only ever had very few of. It is a very good condition U.S. M1892 bayonet dated 1897, made for the Springfield Model 1892–99 Krag-Jørgensen rifles, some of which were still in use during WWI. It is fitted with its original all steel scabbard with a swivel belt loop on the back. These are very rarely seen on today's market, especially with the scabbard included and fully intact.
The "Krag" was the U.S. Army's first repeating rifle, and the M1892 bayonet was based on the Swiss M1889 bayonet, made for use on the 7.5 mm. M1889 Schmidt-Rubin straight-pull bolt-action rifle.
This example is in very good condition, with the original bright finish and a great blade with just a bit of sharpening, mostly on the tip. The 1892 pattern "smooth" grips are in great shape with just a few dents and chips, and are held in place by the correct ground smooth flat-rivets, which were changed after 1899 to domed rivets. It is marked 1897 on one side, and US on the other, and has a fully functional bayonet catch.
The scabbard is in very good condition, with a worn blued finish, and a fully functional swivel. The scabbard body is straight, with only small dents and dings. There area few areas of light rust on the scabbard, but nothing major, especially considering the age.
