Original U.S. Spanish - American War Model 1892 Krag Rifle Bayonet and 2nd Pattern Scabbard - Dated 1898
Original Item: Only One Available. These are something that we have only ever had very few of but appear to be making a comeback! It is a Pre WWI, Spanish-American War dated U.S. M1892 bayonet, 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 good condition, with the original bright finish oxidized to a gray coloration. Blade shows signs of sharpening, and of honest use, most likely in a tropical environment with finish loss, pitting and tip rounding on the point of the blade, more than likely from trapped water inside of the scabbard. The 1892 pattern "smooth" grips are in good condition with just a few dents and chips, and are held in place by ground flat domed rivets. The wood does show some wear and open grain.
The blade is marked 1898 on one side, and US on the other, and has a fully functional bayonet catch. The scabbard is in very good condition, with a blued finish, and a fully functional swivel. The scabbard body is straight, with minor surface rust.
This is an excellent example for being 125 years old! Comes more than ready for display.
