Original U.S. Pre-WWI M1892 Bayonet and Scabbard for Springfield Krag-Jørgensen Rifles - dated 1899
Original Item: Only One Available. This is not something that we have only ever had very few of. This is a very good condition U.S. M1892 bayonet dated 1899, 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 that was not sharpened . The 1899 pattern "ribbed" grips still have a good deal of the original texture, and are held in place by the correct ground smooth flat-rivets, which were changed after 1899 to domed rivets. It is marked 1899 on one side, and US on the other, and has a fully functional bayonet catch. There is also rack number D / 31 stamped into the left grip scale.
The scabbard is in very good condition, with a worn blued finish, and a fully functional swivel. The scabbard body is straight, with only minor dents and dings. There area few areas of light rust on the scabbard, but nothing major, especially considering the age.
