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

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a type of bayonet 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.

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 very nice condition blade. It has not been sharpened, and has very little rust, being one of the better examples we have seen. The post 1899 pattern "ribbed" grips unfortunately have been worn or polished smooth, and are held in place by the correct dome headed rivets, which were not ground down. It is marked 1902 on one side, and US on the other, and has a fully functional bayonet catch. We have only had one or two better than this.

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

A very nice honest used example, ready to display or add to your Springfield Krag rifle!
