HI! I wonder if you can help me with this one! I am not sure what it is, but the man I bought it
from told me that if was for protection when you rehearsing bayonet fencing. What do you
think it is? By the way, It’s also mark with the 3 crown stamp.

Cheers
Rogge

Yes , I believe you are correct . It has been posted here before . That is only the 2nd one I have ever seen .

There was a M-1918 fencing musket that was used for bayonet practice . It was non-firing and had a spring loaded barrel ( with padded end ) that retracts when thrust into another soldier . This does not have the hand guard like your photo . That is a neat item to have .
