COLT REVOLVING RIFLE! Super Rare Socket Bayonet for the Colt Revolving Rifle
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is one of the most elusive of all Civil War era socket bayonets. This is the one that was designed for the Colt revolving rifle. In my 30 years this is the first one of these that I have been able to offer and it is a beauty! This one has the full-length blade that measures 18 inches in length. It has the 3 inch socket length with a .78 inch muzzle diameter. It is 21 inches in overall length. The right side of the socket is numbered 5540. It is light but when you look closely, you can see it. These were made without the standard "US" on the base of the blade. The only other marking is a small "0" mating or inspection mark on rear of locking ring. This is officially known as the US 1855 Pattern socket bayonet for the Colt Model 1855 "Root" side hammer revolving military rifle. This bayonet is an extremely rare and desirable socket bayonet. This is an extremely difficult bayonet to find and only a handful have appeared on the market in the last couple of decades. It is a very nice example for the advanced bayonet collector or to accompany your Colt Revolving Rifle.
