Fellow Sharpshooters,

A fascinating and rare Spencer rifle bayonet for sale on the College Hill Arsenal website ($750) that were issued with the first production Spencer rifles (issued to the 1st Michigan Mounted Rifles--aka 5 & 6th Michigan Cavalry). As always, Tim Prince does an outstanding job with historical research on all of the weapons he posts for sale, and this bayonet's lineage is no exception.

The article mentions that this Spencer bayonet will fit an original NM1859-63 Sharps rifle.

Very cool find! I have an original Springfield bayonet on my Garrett. I had to modify the sight channel a bit to fit, but having an original is worth the effort.
