At the beginning of World War One the French government contracted with Remington to start making its rolling block rifle again for issue to its service and support troops. The French government designated rifle as the Remington Rifle Model 1914, buying just over 100,000 of them chambered for the 8mm Lebel cartridge and fitted with sword bayonets, freeing up more modern weapons for front line combat troops. The bayonet follows the general pattern of sword bayonet supplied by Remington on its foreign contracts, though the exact dimensions were specified in the French contracts.

This example is marked by Remington in the blade fuller: “REMINGTON ARMS CO. ILION N.Y.” The steel pommel and guard are smooth metal, a dull silver in color. The blade is in the bright with smooth metal, good edge and point, and just a couple of scattered gray age spots. The wood grips are excellent and the locking mechanism functional. [sr]
