I recently saw a bayonet that the tag said it was for a Winchester 1873.  Does anyone have a picture of one of these?  It is not blued or pitted.  There are no markings on it and it would mount the rifle so the bayonet would be on the bottom.

 Chuck, They made two types, saber and angular. Gordan’s book has a real good picture on page 491, volume 2. The angular is the most common and attaches around the front sight. The saber type requires a special stud on the right forward barrel band of the musket and some carbines. T/R

Chuck,

The things you would want to check is the diameter of the hole and the length of it. T/R has a angular bayonet if you need measurements otherwise I have the saber bayonet.

 Chuck, The angular bayonet is similar to a 1866 bayonet in design, but the 66 bayonet and the 73 are not interchangeable. The angular blade is polished steel about 18″ long. The socket that goes around the front sight lug is bored to about .670″ and has a screw clamp that rotates, locks, and tightens the bayonet on the barrel. It can be carried pointed forward or back.

  The 66 has a .63″ socket and the 73 has a .67″ socket. The link you did for Harry is a 66 bayonet, same design. T/R

First off I don’t want the bayonet.  It is angular and fits over the sight. Many other bayonets do the same.  The shop has about a dozen of them but only 1 says it’s for a 73.  This one is polished.  I’ll have to measure it next week.
