Socket Bayonet for the M/1829 Musket
Due to weaknesses with the M/1825 musket, the Norwegians military soon changed to a more robust musket, the M/1829 musket.
In 1841 this musket was changed to use percussion lock, and today there is only one known unchanged M/1829 musket left.
The M/1829 muskets were delivered with the M/1829 socket bayonet. A version based on the M/1825 bayonet. The new bayonet model differed by having a shorter and thicker arm. A unknown number of bayonet got produced at the weapon factory at Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk.
