    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,
    Ian

    Thanks, bro. Damn, they ain't too attatched to those are they? $165.00??? That's outrageous!

    I just might make myself a plug bayonet regardless.

    Check out Dixie Gun Works. I don't have my catalog handy but I know that they can beat that price.

    When most folks say "Jacobite Rebellion", they usually mean the last rebellion that ended at Culloden, 1746. By that time the First Model King's Musket had a socket bayonet, as they mentioned above.

    OH BTW....., IF you have a First Model of Indian origian, the Pedersoli bayonet WONT fit on it. The diameter of the barrels on the 1st Models are waaaay too big for the Italian made bayonets.
