    Any that are left will be in Museums. Or in a collector's hands. Militia was still using 'em, in .303 Brit(been looking for one of those for years and years), until just before W.W. I.
    Haven't been in the RCR museum down the road from me for eons.

    Canadianicon Mk VI MH marked RRCI rifle # 9 and Pattern 1893 bayonet marked RRCI #82. There is a survey of surviving Mk VI rifles over on the Britishicon Militaria Forums.

    1893

    I briefly owned 1893 issue Wilkinson made bayonet Serial # 272 RRCI marked. Unmarked scabbard, never sharpened, tip broken, release button jammed due to being hammered on the pommel. I have a picture somewhere of it. It ended up with a collector in Englandicon at a 100% + mark up from what i paid for it. I do regret selling it, but i needed the cash.
