UVF / IRA GEW 1888 CONVERTED GRAS BAYONET

1877 dated French 1874 Gras Bayonet & Scabbard
(Non matching numbers)
Converted to fit the German GEW1888 Rifle
By machining the brass hilt down / extending the press stud.
(With the addition of a small metal block)
Otherwise an unchanged 1874
Approx 5,000 of these converted Bayonets
Were supplied to the UVF in 1914 via illegal smuggling
(On the SS Clydevalley 25th April1914)
There are no UVF Markings on this bayonet
I have others in my own collection and none are marked.
Bayonet is in totally untouched as found condition
With light rusting to the blade -Easily removed
An old crack or split to one grip (Totally stable)
Very light rusting to the cross guard / muzzle ring
Scabbard again with light rusting
General patina of age to this item
But nothing at all to detract from it
Good collectable bayonet with an interesting history
Not often seen and a fairly rare beast
A good addition to any collection
