Original Uruguayan M1900 Cruciform Épée Bayonet & Scabbard for Belgian M1895 FN Mauser
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very rare bayonet, for use with Mauser M1895 Mauser Rifles made under contract by FN in Belgium. Previously, Uruguay had used the Daudeteau / Dovitis Rifle, which were German Mauser M1871 rifles converted in France. These were issued with Berthier/Lebel style needle bayonets, with a slot in the side for the cleaning rod.
The Uruguayan M1900 bayonet appears to incorporate the blade from the French bayonet originally supplied with the converted rifles, re-hilted for use with what Uruguay designated the Mauser Español-Brasilero Modelo 1895 (Spanish-Brazilian Mauser Model 1895).
The CRUCIFORM Épée blade measures over 20 inches and is fitted with a brass grip with a very curved steel cross guard. Overall length is about 25 inches. It comes complete with its correct steel scabbard, which is identical to the Lebel in construction.
