Antique 18th c Plug Bayonet for Military Musket Gun
Antique 18th century European Plug Bayonet. A straight tapering single-edged steel blade, double-edged toward the point, cut with a long central fuller, and a further slender fuller on each face. A cast brass crossguard with a chased quillon block, comprising of a pair of recurved quillons, turned horn grip with brass ferrule, and a brass washer on the pommel.

MEASUREMENTS: Overall length in the scabbard is approximately: 51.5 cm (20 1/4 in).

CONDITION: In good condition and shape considering its age, with signs of age and usage, the horn grip is with old cracks.

This type of bayonet was designed to fit into the muzzle of a musket, which meant the musket was temporarily unable to fire. The plug bayonet was quickly abandoned in favour of the socket bayonet, which fitted around the barrel of the musket and allowed it to fire.
