RARE**Swiss SJG Neuhausen Engineer’s Model 1878 Saw Back Vetterli Rifle Sword Bayonet. BAYO 602 - BAYO 602

These sword bayonets were manufactured for Model 1878 10.4 x 38 RF Vetterli service rifles (see pages 189 & 193 plate 428 of The Bayonet Book by Watts & White). This is a scarce M1878 Engineer’s saw back bayonet for the Vetterli rifle and is believed to have taken certain aspects of design from the British Elcho bayonet. In this respect it has black chequered grips, a spatulate type crossguard and a saw back blade. Unlike the Elcho bayonet the blade is fullered on one side only. There are two models of this bayonet, the M1878 and the M1881. The M1878 has grips secured by four rivets and the cross guard is 6mm thick whereas the M1881 has three rivets securing the grips and the cross guard is 7mm thick. Our example has the correct 4 rivet grips and cross guard with muzzle ring. The 18 ¾” blade on this bayonet is marked with the makers name of " SJG Neuhausen" and the cross guard is numbered "166238". The bayonet measures 23 ½” overall length and as is common our example is without scabbard. The price for this scarce bayonet includes UK delivery. BAYO 602
