Confederate Bayonet Alteration
Item #: OS-7137




This is a very unusual Confederate bayonet alteration. It was altered by creating a lead bushing within the bayonet socket. The bayonet was made to fit a barrel significantly larger than a standard .58 caliber arm, but by use of the bushing, or sleeve of lead, was made to fit a .58 caliber rifle or musket.

There is nothing spectacular here, but just a neat alteration showing the length the Confederate armorers had to go to in order to equip the Southern forces.

Where else can you find a legitimate Confederate bayonet for only $395.00?
