I got this from my grandfather a while ago. Not sure what it goes to.
Looks like a Berdan rifle bayonet. Is it 4-edged?
A Muzzle loader !...................LOL
looks like it might be from an 1873 trapdoor rifle
It goes on a British Enfield Musket !...................
That would be my guess. looks a lot like this one.
It could be for several things. Most likely its for a P53 Enfield or a Springfield musket. Its not a Berdan or Lorenz. It should have markings to indicate what country its from.
Looks to be a U.S. M1873 socket bayonet. The steel scabbard body is from a M1873, so the bayonet likely is as well. Definitely a U.S. bayonet. Check yours against the pics and dimensions listed on my site
