This British Pattern 1913 Mk 1 sword bayonet for the Pattern 1914 rifle is in fantastic condition. The P1913 bayonet was officially introduced into British service on the 21st June 1916 and was made under contract in the USA by Remington and Winchester.
By the end of WW1, Remington had produced 1,243,000 of the P1913 bayonets.
The excellent 432mm blade has a deep single fuller on both sides and a rounded spine. The blade has its anti-reflective matt grey finish and its factory edge with no additional attempts at sharpening.
The blued ricasso is stamped with the pattern date of 1913, the production date of ‘5 ’17 (May, 1917) and the Remington maker’s mark. The obverse ricasso bears an American based British inspection stamp and a partially struck mark.
The cross guard and pommel retain their original blueing and the wooden hilt scales are in good condition with use related marks and dings. The pommel bears a British “sold out of service” inverted arrows mark. The press-stud locking mechanism works perfectly.
The bayonet is complete with its leather scabbard with teardrop frog stud. The scabbard is in good condition. The locket and chape retain their original finish with minor wear. The leather is firm and undamaged with its original finish and the stitching is intact and strong. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This is a good example of the WW1 Remington made P1913 bayonet.
