Canadian Ross Bayonet MK I With Leather Scabbard & Frog. - 12914

This is a scarce 1st Pattern Ross bayonet with the stepped back muzzle ring, a smaller muzzle ring diameter and a split annual spring inside the muzzle ring. This acts against the muzzle and ring to provide a rattle free and positive fit. This bayonet fitted the first pattern of Ross rifle but on the introduction of the MK II rifle the bayonet was altered with a larger muzzle ring diameter, no step back on the muzzle ring and the muzzle spring was deleted. This bayonet was made in August 1910 and is so marked on the pommel with the Canadian acceptance mark, inspection stamp and "*-10". The other side is stamped with "Ross Rifle Co Quebec Patent 1907". The pommel and the grips also carry inspection stamps. The slab grips are in very good condition secured with two screw bolts. The push button release works as it should. The bayonet measures 14 3/4 inches overall and has an officially modified clean 10 inch blade. It is contained in its brown leather scabbard with integral frog. The rear is stamped with a faint "1909". This is a very nice complete WW1 bayonet combination in excellent condition. (see Skennerton's item C4 pages 300-303). The price includes UK delivery.
