Item Code: 1037-399

A minty example of the scarce bayonet for the Model 1899 Remington-Lee rifle. The configuration is similar to the Krag knife bayonet, but with a hooked lower quillon. The blade is in the bright and we see only a couple of tiny gray spots near the tip. Point and edge are excellent with no nicks or signs of sharpening. Guard and pommel are in the bright as well, though with a few gray spots on the guard and scattering on the pommel, which is shading toward gray. Locking button works fine. Wood grips rate very good with some light pressure dents and dings.

The Remington-Lee rifle of 1899 was an attempt to update and adapt their 1885 magazine bolt action rifle to the new .30-40 caliber smokeless ammunition used by the Krag. It was not adopted by the U.S. government, but military models did make their way into the hands of foreign forces in various calibers. Flayderman estimates only some 7,000 were made, but that figure includes sporting models and carbines as well as the military rifle, for which this bayonet was made.

The scabbard is very good, and scarcer even than the bayonet. No dents to the deep blue metal mounts. Krag style pivoting belt hook is in place. Black leather body is solid, with good color and with some crazing to the finish. There are no markings, which is common with Remington made bayonets. This is a scarce bayonet.  [sr]
