    Yes Sir it is Govt. Issue one....Inland Div. General Motors Sept, 1942

    The bayonet is a post WWII M4 Imperial. Plastic handles replaced leather (1954-late 1960's)

    Sheath for the bayonet is USM8A1 with metal tip/grommet (1955 and after)

    or so I think :confused:

    This knife in the background used to be a bayonet...a folding Italian one. I re-shaped the business end and made a deer antler handled sticker out of it.

    Here’s one I picked up for my M44 that had a missing bayonet. It’s new/old stock, and luckily it’s the proper 1945 date.

    Going to have to take some pictures. I am a sucker for them. Almost impossible for me to leave an Army/Navy store without one if they have something I don't already have laying on my bookcase.

    bayonets, knives, fixed and folders, and swords. I love blades. With close to 100 + in the collection I feel its an addiction just like guns only cheaper.

    Army did away with Bayonet Assault course training in 2010...still do pugils, but no assault courses anymore...bayonets are now something of a novelty..."a more elegant weapon for a more civilized age."

    The bottom Colt is a US M7 bayonet for the M16 series, the M8A1 is the nomenclature of the scabbard. The M8A1 scabbard can also be used with the M3 trench knife and M4 (M1 Carbine), M5 (M1 rifle) and M6 (M14 rifle) bayonets.

    Thanks, was hoping I would get some good info on the pictures. Really do not know much about the them, just cannot pass them up when I see them. Guy at work was broke and I got that one for 10 bucks.

    Here's my Garand bayonet bought 35 years ago for, I think, $10. It has an uncut 10" blade that has the original edge (not sharpened). It was manufactured by Union Fork & Hoe (UFH) in 1943 (matches the Garand year). No rust, dings or edge issues.
