Description

Italian Alpine Troops M1891 Carcano Truppi Speciali Bayonet, Scabbard and Green leather Frog. Sn 12913 - 12913

This is a scarce and unusual bayonet which was issued with the 1891 Carcano carbine to special troops. These were troops such as Alpine Troops, Artillery and engineers who needed their hands free but the short carbine could be slung over their backs for quick use if needed. The bayonet differed from the standard M1891 bayonet in having a lateral mortise slot and a press catch on the pommel end. The blade is 11.5" in length and fullered on both sides. The crossguard and pommel are blued steel and the grips are wood, secured by 2 rivets. The scabbard is fluted leather with brass top and bottom mounts. The frog is the correct green leather frog. It is in very good condition and all of the stitching is present and secure. These bayonets were only issued in small numbers and are correspondingly quite scarce. This example is in beautiful condition. (see White & Watts, item 433, page 189-195). The price includes UK delivery. Sn 12913
