Rifle Serial Number: 10444

Very Good Condition - Matching Serial Numbers - Matching 1914 Pioneer (Sawback) Bayonet

The serial number of this rifle dates it to circa 1915.

Produced concurrently with the 1911 Rifle, the 1911 Carbine replaced both the Short Rifle and Calvary Carbine.

While production of the 1911 rifle stopped in 1919, Carbine production continued until 1933 with some 184,000 Carbines being produced.

These rifles & carbines, along with those converted to the new pattern, fired the new GP11 round.

The 1911 possessed all the improvements of the converted Schmidt-Rubin 1896/11 Rifle.

The Model 1914 bayonet differs from earlier sawtooth models with the addition of the bulge at the end of the blade.
Also, the 1914 is fullered on only one side. The Model 1914 was issued to only select troops.

This example has its original matching Model 1914 Pioneer (Sawback) bayonet, leather sling
and the originals owners detail are still stored under the butt plate

This is a nice original matching set with the rifle having a very good bore
