|The carbine had a sword bayonet similar to the one the short M1860 had, but with a 12 cm long grip and steel scabbard. I’ve never been offered this bayonet and therefor have a mjor hole in my collection.
Kammerlader carbines are scarce, very scarce. With the original open chamber they are virtually non-existing with the exception of the M1857, here you might find one or two.
They are charming little rifles and almost look like a little boys gun, downsized from his fathers large one. Everything except the bore seems to be scaled down from a "real" one and if just catching a glance of one on a picture, you might believe is was a M1859 or similar.
Value? I made a swap with the Norwegian Amy Museum in the 1970’s and “took” a really lovely artillery carbine in close to perfect condition. In a swap last year, the receiving party valued my carbine at NOK 35 000 - that I would call a very stiff price!. The one I have today is not as nice, but probably still worth somewhere in the range of NOK 15 000.
The value of the bayonet? For a perfect one complete with scabbard, probably close to the value of the carbine I have today. Actually, I don’t have the faintest idea. I’ve never been offered one – take a hint!
