    Collectible, I don't presently have a 45-70 Springfield to measure the OD of the muzzle, but that's what I'm guessing. Issued from 1873- about 1888. Probably get flak from experts & purist, but that's from my memory.

    No flak from me, Blunder. The measurements fit the US Model 1873 bayonet, for the 45-70 Springfield.
