No. 269,547. Patented Dec. 26, 1882.




SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 269,547, dated December 26, 1882.

Application filed March 1, 1882.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, EBEN T. STARR, of the city and county of New York, in the State of New York, have invented certain new and use- (No model.)

| to be grasped in the hand to enable the bayonet to be used effectively as a sword in caseit be desirable.

E designates the wiping-rod, which is prot'ul Improvements in Bayonets, of which the vided with a tubular end portion, E, and 5 following is a specification. when it is not in use the rod passes through The invention consists in the combination, the said tubular portion, and is screwed into with the barrel and ramrod or wiping-rod ot' the front end thereof at.

The invention also consists in the combination, with the band of a lire-arm forming the tip of the fire-arm, and having in its front a recess or cavity, of a bayonet having a socket fitted to the barrel and a projection adapted to enter said recess or cavity, and thereby prevent the tnrning of the socket upon the barrel. The invention also consists in a novel conthe band C. \Vhen the wiping-rod is to be used the tubular end portion is unscrewed from the band C and from the end of the rod E, after which it is reversed in position and again screwed thereon, thus making the rod long enough for use. When the rod E isin the band 0 its front end is received within the socket D of the bayonet, and it will be seen that as the hilt'ofthe bayonet receives both the bar- 2o rel and rod E it will be prevented from turn- 70 struction and manner of securing the ramrod ing on the barrel. or wiping-rod used with said sword-bayonet.

D designates the bayonet, which is made in the form of a short sword, as clearly seen in Fig. l, and the hilt portion of which is fitted to the barrel A. The bayonet is provided with a socket, D, which receives the barrel A, and with a second andsmaller socket, D which is parallel with the socket D. The two said sockets form a handle or hilt, which is adapted It will be observed that the bayonet is held against turning on the barrel independently of the pin f, and that the latter only serves to prevent the bayonet from being pulled off the barrel.

What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- 1. The combination, with the barrel and ramrod or wiping-rod of a fire-arm, of a bayonet provided with two parallel sockets, one of ICC which is fitted to the barrel and the other of 3.
