  • Description: This is the blued variant bayonet and measures 23" overall, with a 20 3/4" angular blade having a single wide fuller, hollow-ground back flutes, and a very short shank with blunt end. The metal retains about 90-92% of the original blue finish, with tiny specks of thin plum-brown freckling scattered about the surface. The socket measures 3" in length, with an inside diameter of .73", and has a rotating locking ring with an overall plum-brown patina. These are seldom seen bayonets, and this example is in fine overall condition.
