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 some foreign forces in various calibers. It was designed to take a knife bayonet similar to the Krag. This is very clean example with its scarce scabbard. The blade is bright silver gray and shows just scattered darker gray spots and flecks. The edge and point are very good. Unlike the Krag and Lee straight pull bayonets, however, the guard has a hooked lower quillon. The wood grips are tight to the metal and free of nicks or gouges. The pommel matches the guard in being light silver in color with scattered dark gray spots and smooth metal. The button and locking mechanism are fine. The scabbard body is black leather with blued steel throat and drag, pretty much identical to the first pattern scabbards for the Lee straight-pull bayonet, but with an early Krag style long open pivoting belt hook. The leather is in good condition. The metal has lots of original blue, but some brown spots on the face of the throat and on the belt hook, particularly on the reverse at the top and bottom bends.

As is the case with many Remington bayonets there are no markings. The same pattern is used with Remington rolling block military rifles, though generally with a longer blade. With very limited production of the military rifle (Flayderman estimates only about 7,000 of the rifle, carbine and sporting versions combined,) this is a scarce bayonet.  [sr]
