Actually, maybe the rear sight is calibrated for 75 yards when all the way up!

Compared to a Martini Henry with a similar bayonet.  Designed for for those equipped with the carbines to withstand a cavalry charge.

Pull the trigger, thrust blade... steel and lead probably hit the target at the same time! Be tough to turn around in doorways!

That would be akin to lobbing a grenade over a high wall. Lol!

A bit of an overly optimistic rear sight!

After more than two months I feel that we could do with another change! Not an Enfield, but a British long-reach carbine with its bayonet. A Jacobs Rifle and sighted up to 2,000 yards!

There are various other bits of metal sticking out of the wall as well.
 I suspect it was probably just to hang a net of hay for the horses.

I bought a slightly rusty 1853 type bayonnet for 3 Euro's a couple of years back. 
This was at a local village brocante. It was attached to a broom handle; and a guy was looking at it and asked the price. 3 Euros says the seller; " I'll give you 2" says the guy. "No" says the seller (Meanwhile I'm sorting 3 Euro in change in my pocket). 2.50 says the guy; "No it's 3 Euro's" says the seller.
As soon as the guy turns away; (probably expecting the seller to say OK 2.50. I step forward " Here's 3 Euro" and off we walk with the bayonnet; just as the other guy was turning back!

I gave it to a neighbour who's in to the local history of the 1870 Prussian war; of which the region was heavily involved. In particular the 18th October 1870 battle of Chateaudun.

Here's the one in the wall!

I never see these spike bayonets here in the States.
Always looking for military manuals, Dodge M37 items,books on Berlin Germany, old atlases ( before 1946) , military maps of Scotland. English and Canadian gun parts.
