This British 1907 pattern bayonet was made by the Remington Arms Company in America in November, 1915. The first delivery from Remington to the UK was in July 1915.
Approximately 4,930,000 pattern 1907 bayonets were produced by the end of World War One. Remington only produced 100,000 in total, making their P1907 bayonets quite rare today.
The 426mm, single edged blade has a long narrow fuller and rounded spine. The edge was service sharpened. The blade is in very good condition and retains its original matt finish.
The ricasso retains its original blueing and is marked with the pattern designation, 1907 and the date of manufacture 11 ’15 (November 1915) below which is stamped the circular Remington maker’s mark.
The obverse ricasso bears the War Department broad arrow, bend test stamp and two Enfield inspection stamps and a British, American based inspector’s stamp. There is also a date number ‘18 (1918), the date when the clearance hole was drilled in the pommel as these were not a feature of the 1907 pattern at the time this bayonet was made.
The cross guard, muzzle ring and pommel are in excellent condition and retain their blued finish. The press stud and catch mechanism are crisp and in perfect working order. The wooden grip scales are in good condition with age related wear and colouration. The scales are held firmly in place by the two original screws.
The bayonet is complete with its Remington made No.1 Mk ll brown leather scabbard with a teardrop stud. The scabbard is in excellent condition. The leather and stitching are sound and the leather is faintly stamped with the War Department arrow. The steel locket and chape bear Remington manufacture stamps. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This is an excellent example of a rare Remington made British P1907 bayonet.
