Original U.S. Pre-WWI M1892 Bayonet and Scabbard for Springfield Krag-Jørgensen Rifles - dated 1902

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is something that we have only ever had very few of. This is a very good condition U.S. M1892 bayonet dated 1902, 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 and in such good condition.

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 blade showing very little use. It still has the original factory finish and grind, and the original factory blunt edge. There is some light oxidation and runner wear, but nothing significant, as shown. The post 1899 pattern "ribbed" grips still have a traces of the original texture, and are held in place by the correct dome headed rivets, which were not ground smooth. There are however some small dents, and one grip is stamped with the number 1. It is marked 1902 on one side of the blade ricasso, and US on the other, and has a fully functional bayonet catch. The pommel does show finish wear and rust peppering from over a century of storage.

The scabbard is excellent, with almost all of the original blued finish, and a fully functional swivel. The scabbard body is straight, with only tiny dents in areas. There area few areas of light oxidation on the scabbard, but nothing major, especially considering the age.

An very nice lightly used example, ready to display or add to your Springfield Krag rifle!
