This is a very nice all original British sword bayonet made for the 1856 2 band Enfield rifle. This bayonet is in all original condition and does not appear to have been cleaned or repaired. The locking mechanism still works just as it should and has a tight retainer spring. The blade is in good shape with staining throughout and the very tip of the blade being broken off. It is the correct 23" length and has not been modified or shortened in any way. This bayonet does not come with the sheath. It was manufactured by A & A.S.
