I have this posted on the Mannlicher, Steyr forum under “Unknown muzzle cover” with no ID as to what country or rifle. I was going through my socket bayonets when I noticed the similarity to the Swiss 1867 bayonet front sight opening to this muzzle cover opening. Both have the peak roof profile. Looking through my reference books and on line sites I found no such type muzzle cover for a Swiss. It does fit on my Swiss Vetterli rifle.
Is it “possible” this was a piece made to look good for parade or ceremony use? Or as I was asking in the Mannlicher forum any ideas on ID.
