I posted this question in my other thread about my First Pattern Brown Bess, but as it was divergent enough from my original question, I thought I'd post it separately. I am sorry if you find it annoying that I did this, but I'd like to find an answer.
For a First pattern Brown Bess, did they use a plug bayonet? If not, what was used?
I am going for something that would be appropriate for a Jacobite impression.
Thanks in advance for your help, I am fairly new here, and so far you guys have been great.
All the best,

I don't know what's authentic, but Cabela's sells a socket-style bayonet "to complete the authenticity of the [Pedersoli] musket."
