This Mexican bayonet is known by some collectors as the Model 1899 and by others as the Remington No.5 rolling block rifle bayonet. The 1899 designation comes from the year that Mexico purchased the 7,702 No.5 rifles from Remington. These bayonets were made by Remington and used by Mexico between 1899 and 1909.
The 210mm single-edged blade has a thick, flat spine above a deep, squared fuller and terminates in a spear point. The blade is in good condition with some tiny spots of pitting on the spine.
The polished steel crosspiece is finished with a hooked quillon with ball finial. The polished birds-beak pommel is in good condition and the press stud attachment mechanism is in crisp working order. The hardwood grip scales are in good used condition and held firmly in place by two rivets.
The bayonet is complete with its black leather scabbard with steel mounts and an integral steel belt hook. The scabbard is in good condition. The stitching is intact and the locket, chape and belt hook retain their original finish.
This is a nice example of the turn of the century Mexican knife bayonet.
