Stevens, Maastricht (Netherlands) 30.000 rifles, the Birmingham Small Arms Company (UK) 30.000 rifles and the Geweerwinkel (WDW), Delft (Netherlands) approx. 23.000.

This bayonet will also fit the former M1815 and M1848 rifles 

The M1867 Snidergeweren (Snider rifles) were made from modified Getrokken Geweren No.1, which on their turn came from modified M1848 & M1815 rifles. All of these rifles were fitted with the same bayonets, only the length of the blades vary.

 

The M1867 Snidergeweer (Snider rifle) bayonets are considered rare by collectors.
