1842 Springfield Bayonet and Scabbard
Our 69 caliber bayonet designed to fit the US Model 1842 musket (GUN-046, GUN-047 & GUN-100). May require minor fitting. Includes Gaylord pattern riveted scabbard. Imported.
Between 1843 and 1855 a total of 275,000 of the M1842 model were manufactured
by Springfield and Harpers Ferry Armories, of which 172,000 were turned
out at Springfield alone. The bayonet utilized for this model musket
was the Model 1842 socket bayonet, which was 20-1/2 inches long, with a
2-7/8 inch socket and an 18-inch triangular blade. The U.S. Model 1842
Musket was the first arm to be produced at both the Harpers Ferry and
Springfield Armories on a completely interchangeable basis, and aside
even from this significant fact, holds a prominent position in the
development of U.S. military shoulder arms. This was the first
regulation percussion arm produced in the national armories, and at the
same time, the last of the .69 caliber smoothbores.
NOTE: If you have a Euroarms musket you WILL need to do some fitting to make it fit. This can be done with a Dremel Tool
