US M1816 SOCKET BAYONET

$75.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 172-5675

This is an original angular socket bayonet made for the US Model 1816 Flintlock Musket longarm. In time, the M1816 was converted to a percussion musket and the accompanying accoutrements could also be affixed to the newer conversion. The M1816 bayonet was the first American bayonet to include a uniformly ground flute and the first bayonet to employ the “T” mortise in the socket. The triangular blade on this particular item is just short of the standard 16” measuring at 15 ½”, and the socket measures 3”. “US” is stamped into the flat shank. Overall, the bayonet has a dark patina with signs of severe pitting and oxidation. [jet] [ph:L]
