Make : MkII (Altered) bayonet.

Description: Canadian Ordnance issue Ross MkII (Altered) bayonet, no scabbard. Hilt with wooden grip scales has release button to the rear left and is stamped to the right of the pommel ROSS RIFLE Co. QUEBEC PATENTED 1907. Cross guard with muzzle ring to the top is stamped 126. Single edged spear point blade with sharpened tip reground during conversion by the Canadian army circa 1915. Adopted to fit the Canadian .303” Ross straight pull rifle the bayonets unlike the troublesome rifles performed well in the combat of the trenches. It was however felt the original rounded profile of the tip lacked penetrating capability and around 1915 onwards the tips were reground to a sharp point that proved much better at penetrating the thick great coats and jackets etc worn by German troops during the winter months of the Great War. In good condition with good scales, working catch and a good blade. A nice example of a now scarce WW1 issue Canadian arm of the Great War.
