Description

VERY EARLY, Canadian Ross Rifle Company MK1 Bayonet & WW1 1916 MK 2 Leather Scabbard With Integral Frog. BAYO 460 - BAYO 460

This is a very early 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 "6-09" (June 1909 date) making this a very early example as the MK1 was only made from 1909-1910 whereas the MK 2 was produced from 1911-1917. The other side is stamped with "Ross Rifle Co Quebec Patent 1907". The slab grips are in very good condition secured with two screw bolts. The push button release works as it should. The grips have small inspection marks and one is impressed ‘K830’. The bayonet measures 15” overall and has a 10 ¼” blade. It is contained in its brown leather scabbard with integral frog. The tip of the scabbard is dated ‘1916’ and has ‘MK’ designation (most likely MK 2). This is a very nice complete bayonet combination in excellent condition. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 460
