Springfield Bayonet AH-3554
Our Springfield Bayonet is a socket bayonet which was an improvement over the earlier plug bayonets. Socket Bayonets were made with a socket that fitted over the barrel of the musket and had a slot which slid past the fore sight. The Springfield Bayonet is a later period bayonet that has a locking catch. The blade is offset to one side allowing the soldier to load the musket. Our high quality Springfield Bayonet is a replica of the Bayonet that was used during the US Civil War. The bayonet blade is made from hand forged high carbon tempered steel. Includes a black leather sheath with brass fittings.
Overall is 18"
