Socket bayonet like Trap Door help!

Recommended Posts

I bought a fist full of US socket bayonets at a large estate auction of firearms. I will try to get some pictures up. But one I assumed was a Trap Door Springfield bayonet has a much smaller then standard socket. It probably would drop right on a .30 cal trapdoor. If one existed. Everything is identical to my 45/70 socket bayonets. Size, shape, tip etc. it is 100% unmarked but shows a little wear. Anyone know of a smaller caliber trapdoor or similar foreign socket bayonet? This auction had boat loads of very rare 1700-1903 weapons so it would not shock me if it also was obscure or rare. Thanks for any ideas.

Wild guess. Remington export bayonet. Along with pictures, give measurements. Length of socket, inside diameter of socket, length of blade, and muzzle length ( that's the measurement from the front of the socket to the opening of the slot). Some of us might find a bayonet in our archives that comes close to these measurements.
