REMINGTON ZOUAVE SWORD BAYONET

$275.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1037-401

Popularly known as the “Remington Zouave,” the Remington Model 1862 U.S. Contract Rifle was produced from 1863 to 1864 by Remington and 10,001 were delivered to the government (the odd number including one sample gun,) though apparently not issued. The rifle’s nickname among collectors is likely due to its beautiful and somewhat fancy appearance, like period zouave uniforms. The rifle was designed to take a sword bayonet, illustrated in Harden as #75. As is correct, the bayonet has an unmarked 20 3/16 inch blade that is unmarked except with a small sub-inspector letter “S.” The hilt likewise has a small sub-inspector “C” on the guard and the expected “BH” inspector initials on the top flat of the grip near the muzzle ring. The blade is very good, with smooth metal, good edge and point, showing mostly bright but with some gray areas near the tip and a few smaller spot near the guard. The brass hilt has a medium patina with a few brighter spots. The pommel, guard and top flat of the grip are smooth metal. The ribbed grips show frosting overall that may be from an old cleaning. The locking ring and button are present and functional.

One of the basic U.S. sword bayonets to have in a collection.  [sr]
