Remington Arms Bayonet

Post by AREMINGTONSEDGE » Sat Mar 25, 2017 8:54 am

Here is an example of an original Remington Arms Bayonet with metal scabbard and leather frog. Overall length is 21 1/2 inches. This bayonet is reported to fit the REMINGTON "IMPROVED SMALL BORE MILITARY RIFLE" also known as the MODEL 1902. This model was the final step in the evolution of the Rolling Block rifle. The improvements included the patented ejector for the rimless 7 mm Mauser cartridge, developed by Albert H Day. Other improvements included a stronger hand guard and a modified butt plate. The new design allowed the rifle to handle the powerful 7 mm MAUSER smokeless cartridge. Even into the era of bolt action repeating rifle, REMINGTON sold hundreds of thousands of these rifles throughout the world, but primarily in Central and South America. To find these smokeless REMINGTONS in original condition has become very difficult as many of were converted into custom rifles in various calibers.

Additional information on this Remington Bayonet. Also here is information on what a quillion was intended for in use. A quillion was the "hooked" portion of the bayonet.

Quillions were used for both stacking arms as well as to potentially catch an enemy's blade while parrying a blow from a rifle or sword. Catching a blade while parrying an attack is NOT the same as "breaking" a blade with the quillion as some folks might claim.

In parrying a slashing or thrusting blow, as it fencing, you deflect the enemy blade. A quillion, as originally found on swords, was intended to keep the enemy's blade from sliding down the length of the rifle to strike your left arm and hand that were holding the forearm of the rifle.

Mind you, this design was based on the concept of the classic "bayonet fight." However, eventually it was discovered that classic bayonet duels were few and far between in the age of small caliber, high-velocity, smokeless powder repeating rifles.
