Dutch Model 1871 de Beaumont
Socket Bayonet

This is a socket bayonet manufactured from the period of 1871 and variations used to about 1894. They are distinctively Dutch in that they use a cruciform blade and have a unique "2-screw" locking ring; the locking ring is in two parts, held together by two screws on opposing sides.
These are attached by fitting them over the barrel muzzle, and fastened into position by means of a mortise slot and locking ring.
All metal construction.
These were designed to fit the 9.4mm 1871 Dutch de Beaumont Rifle and its variants.
