Springfield M1795 Bayonet

I have a pedersoli reproduction of the 1795 springfield. I would like to also get a bayonet for it (preferably a reproduction.) I can not find one specific to this gun. I was thinking the 1816 bayonet or a charleville bayonet might fit. Does anyone know of have suggestions?

I have a similar looking pig sticker somewhere down in the basement. I will try to find it and see how similar it is. I bought it at a gun auction years ago. I don't know why I wanted it, but I own it if I can find it.

Found it, and it is not even close.

Why pay that much for an incorrect reproduction when you can get an original for around the same money? https://www.regtqm.com/product-p/bay-676.htm

Preferably a reproduction would be a good idea. Gunderson Militaria wants $395 for a real one, in "very good" condition. Their "fair" condition is heavily pitted.
According to worldbayonets.com, you're looking for a bayonet that was made at the time by local blacksmiths vs the SA factory. And the first bayonets made there was the Pattern 1807. A clone of the French M1763 musket. So if that Dixie Gunworks repro is worth $207 to you, it'll do. Nobody will be checking anyway. Just be really friggin' careful when you play with it. Lotta Regulars and Reservists get hurt on parades with bayonets.
