This replica of the M1853/72 Socket Bayonet for the British Martini Henry rifle is made from high carbon steel and comes with a leather bayonet sheath brass fittings. Socket Diameter is 18.5 mm.

The M1853/72 bayonet is actually a modified M1853 Enfield bayonet which was ‘’bushed’’ to give the socket a slightly smaller diameter to make it compatible with the newer Martini Henry rifle. The bayonet would eventually be replaced by the 1887 Mk.1 bayonet, in large part due to a ‘’bayonet scandal’’ concerning a number of soft and ill-tempered bayonets from the Indian Army which under-performed notably for British troops in Sudan.
