Hi all,
I have aquired this bayonet and scabbard and dont know exactly which model of rifle it belongs to, I think it may be an Enfield

It does resemble the Martini Henry sword bayonet, although I doubt it is,

PM sent

Its a P1888 Mk2 bayonet for the .303 Lee Met/ Lee Enfield.

The Mk1 has one large rivet, and smaller steel lacing to scabbard, but they are often mixed up.

There is a version for the Martini Metford Mk11 (MH Mk6) in .303" calibre but with the heavy .450" cal barrel, known as the P1893 Canadian pattern. Rare in UK, as they were issued to Canada, approx 9000 made. Looks very much the same, except larger distance from the socket to blade and rivet spacing wider. (just for info)
