This American WW1 1917 Pattern bayonet was imported to the UK for use with the Enfield .30 calibre rifle. The bayonet was made by Remington.
The 433mm blade has a deep single fuller on both sides and a rounded spine. The blued blade is in excellent condition with only mild scabbard wear to the blued finish. The blade retains its original factory edge.
The ricasso is stamped with the 1917 pattern designation above the Remington maker’s mark. The obverse ricasso bears the “flaming grenade” over “US” ordnance stamp and the eagle head, numbered inspection stamp. The cross guard and pommel retain their original blueing and the wooden grip scales are in great condition. The press-stud locking mechanism works perfectly.
The bayonet is complete with its British leather scabbard with a teardrop frog stud. The scabbard is in very good condition and is stamped with the War Department arrow and inspection stamp. The locket and chape retain period applied dark green paint. The leather is firm and undamaged. The stitching is intact and strong. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This Remington P1917 is in excellent condition and is a great example of one of the scarcer blued bayonets.
