This is a replica of a bayonet carried by the Sepoy Infantry in both the Indian Sikh Wars, of 1845/6 and 1848/9 and later in the Great Sepoy Rebellion (Indian Mutiny of 1857-58). The socket is specially designed to encircle the Model "F" bayonet stud catch under the barrel.
This is a high-quality steel reproduction copied directly from an original. This bayonet was designed to fit a British EIC pattern F musket with a .75 bore and the straight style F pattern bayonet spring catch which was then adopted by the British as the P-1842 musket. Please note: Issues with a replica bayonet not fitting the rifle is not uncommon and sometimes revisions must be made. This is due to the manufacturing of both the original rifle as well as the replica bayonet because they were not made by the same manufacturer.
