Click on an image to enlarge
This is a nice original socket bayonet for the Civil War era conversion of the early .69 caliber muskets. At the outbreak of the Civil War the U.S. Government had a tough decision to make. Should they buy new weapons or just convert the old flintlocks that were in the arsenals' They did both. This is one of the bayonets for the muskets that the government converted from flintlock to percussion. You often see this style on conversion from the Remington Company as well as other firms like Hewes & Phillips. These were also used by the government when they had to issue replacement bayonets for the soldiers that were still using the early .69 caliber smoothbore muskets. So if you have wanted one that you know is Civil War to display with your early production .69 musket then this one is for you. It has a full-length blade with a gray tone to the metal. These bayonets are easily distinguished from the standard 1816 bayonets because of the blade. The socket is like the Model 1861 but the blade has the shape and design of the standard model 1855. At the base of the blade it has the "US" mark remaining at the base of the blade. The socket is in nice shape and all this bayonet needs is your gun.
