The bayonet looks like what was used on the 1895 Lee Navy too.  I’m not sure if there were different lengths?

Nice rifle Henry. Never liked 95’s until I actually bought one when the price was to good to refuse. New respect.

Chuck ; According to the ’95 book,They used a 16″bayonet , primarily, and a 8″ which is apparently scarce and many of ’em faked.

Rick ; I don’t really care for ’em either but nice ones, especially these muskets, are hard to come by, and believe Me it was no “bargain”

I’m sure it wasn’t cheap. Nice find still the same. Your collection is impressive.

The Lee Navy bayonet is 8-1/4″ long.  Here is some information from Eugene Myszkowski’s book on the Lee Navy.  Start reading the last paragraph on the left side of the page.
