This American WW1 1917 Pattern bayonet for the Enfield .30 calibre rifle was made by Remington.
The 433mm blade has a deep single fuller on both sides and a rounded spine. The blade is in excellent condition and retains its original factory edge.
The ricasso is stamped with the 1917 pattern designation above the Remington maker’s mark. The obverse ricasso bears the “flaming grenade” over “US” ordnance stamp and the eagle head, numbered inspection stamp. The cross guard and pommel retain most of their original blueing and the wooden hilt scales are in great condition. The press-stud locking mechanism works perfectly.
The bayonet is complete with its original green leather scabbard, which is in very good condition with staining and marks from age and use. The locket and chape retain their original blueing. The green leather is firm and undamaged with the stitching is intact and strong. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This Remington P1917 bayonet is in excellent condition and is a great example of the pattern.
