Baker Rifle

Baker rifle and sword bayonet

The Sword Bayonet was a long, knife-bladed bayonet designed for mounting on the Baker rifle. When unmounted from the rifle, sword bayonets, with hilts and long blades, could be wielded as short swords for use in close quarters combat.

They are the reason the order given to the rifle units in the Sharpe's novels is not 'fix bayonet' but 'fix swords.'
