Italian M1870/87/15 Vetterli Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 319 - BAYO 319

This is the final version of the M1870 Vetterli bayonet which has had the original 20.375 inch blade officially shortened to 9.125inches and had the quillon removed. On entering WW1, Italy found itself seriously short of arms and many of the old Vetterli rifles had their 10.5mm barrels inner sleeved to take the 6.5mm Carcano cartridge. The original bayonets were shortened in order to conform approximately to the Carcano 6.5mm rifle with its bayonets fixed. This bayonet has the 9.125 inch blade with the fuller running to the tip. The crossguard carries NO 9296 and MP in a rectangular cartouche. The pommel is all steel and is fixed to the blade by a nut on the top. The wooden grip plates are in excellent condition and the leaf spring is the 1st pattern long version. Later models had a much shorter leaf spring. The bayonet is fitted in its original brass mounted leather scabbard which is stamped to the rear with ANNUNZIATA 1882. See The Bayonet Book by White and Watts, item 437 on pages 190 and 197. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 319
