I am trying to find out what the authentic bayonet was for this rifle. It didn't have one when I bought it and I would like to get the correct one...does anyone have a pic so I can see what I need to get?

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Remington (and New England Westinghouse for that matter) were only contracted to manufacture the rifles. As such, I think any Model 1891 cruciform bayonet with locking ring would be correct for your rifle. There is a guy on eBay that sells them for a relatively reasonable price.

You are correct that any M91 lock ring bayonet would be correct "as used". However, NEW and Remington both made bayonets. I do not own but have seen Remington bayonets and they have a small circled R on them. I do own an NEW manufactured M91 bayonet and it has a letter with an arrow on the back and an eagle head stamp on the side. M91 bayonets by both of these manufacturers are very difficult to find. However; the search is 1/2 the fun right?

Well, I can't find it at the moment, but I have a "circled R"-marked lock-ring bayonet around here somewhere. Generally speaking, American-made Mosin bayonets are a tough find. Having said that, you will find one today! DDR

I found a Remington M91 bayonet a few years ago at a swap meet for $15. A lot of these bayonets were sold off in the 1960's as tent pegs for $.50 cents each!

Great! I'll take a case!

I think my favorite story regarding the demise of unused American made m91 bayonets was the freight ship with a hull full of them for ballast.
Unless your Remington M91 is "all Remington", there's no real need to insist on a Remington made bayonet. Any M91 locking ring bayonet would be fine. The Westinghouse made ones are among the most rare. Randy, look around in http://www.mosinnagant.net for more info.

Keep looking in antique stores in the US, there are plenty still out there! I guess that off hand I have a dozen or more Remington bayonets, and a few Westinghouse bayonets, most of them bought at flea markets, garage and estate sales, and antique stores.
There is a very famous photo of Remington Mosin Nagants on racks at the Remington factory, ready for packing into crates, each with it's own mounted serial numbered bayonet, in one of the Remington history books; Marcot's book, iirc. Westinghouse also made bayonets; the contract with the Russians included a bayonet and cleaning accessories to be provided with each and every rifle purchased. At Remington, making socket bayonets was old hat easy, after those hundreds of thousands of rolling block bayonets, so no problems.

My 91/30 has a remmington BARREL AND RECEIVER, 1939 yr, and the standard locking pigsticker fits just fine.

Remington M91 bayonets are not very hard to find, really. A Westinghouse example is very elusive.

If you find a nice Westinghouse bayo for 150, better jump on it. Uh, better BUY it, I mean.

A few years back I ordered 30 M91 bayonets for $15 each from Interordnance; in that bunch were no real rarities, except for 5 Remingtons and a NEW. Oh and a bunch of early ones with 60 degree slots and stuff like that. No Chatelleraults, or Austrians, dang it. But a big pile of bayonets, almost enough for all my 91s that still lacked bayonets.
The real fun was trying to compare makers and sn's in the faint hope of matching one up to a rifle. No luck with that!
