Details

Designed for the newly adopted Martini-Henry rifle, the Pattern 1876 bayonet was an improved and redesigned Pattern 1853 bayonet. The Pattern 1853 had been considered by many to be too short. As a result, the Pattern 1876 was lengthened by nearly five inches. The cross section was equiangular, rather than being wider on the top as was the Pattern 1853. As the Pattern 1876 was to be used with breechloading arms only, the outward curve was also omitted.

This bayonet is in excellent condition. It retains the majority of its blueing on the socket with extremely minor marks only. The blade is bright. The scabbard is in good condition although the leather has wear in places and the stitching has broken.
