1863 Whitworth Rifle Bayonet

1863 Whitworth Rifle Bayonet

Code: 10771


A good example of the scarce bayonet for the 1863 Whitworth Rifle. One of around 8000 manufactured. Around 1000 rifles and bayonets were sold to the Confederacy during the American Civil War.

Near identical to the 1856 Enfield bayonet, with the exception of the circular mortice slot. Chequered leather slab grips, yataghan type single fullered blade. Faint issue markings crowned VR, etc. 

Even patina overall, no scabbard.

Strictly over 18's only.
