this is a sticky subject
You need an M4 bayonet with the leather handle for that thing
That a GI one? Not anywhere near the top of the list but i’d like to find a GI one from before the bayo lug
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
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.
Need a Mosin bayonet in here.
I have one
Have the blades for all my military guns. Have purchased a bayonet and later found a rifle for it ie US M1917 Enfield.
You know you’re in trouble when you need a bayonet for your sten.
I like the chainsaw ones. They’re neat.
Need one of those for the trench gun, either to keep or make more appealing to someone with an AR
I knew we kept you around for some reason.
Tagging this for later. Have to dig out all my blades...
Three of my mauser bayonets. Top two are german bottom one is Czech. Both the Germans are from 41. Not sure on the Czech
I've got a couple. I like this one the most.
What is this? Nice lines on the blade.
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.
OKC-3S its the usmc bayonet
A4? What manufacturer?
Do they still do bayonet training in the military? I remember mine well.
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.
I am a liker of bayonets as well.
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."
Wasn’t talking about them
Nothing says civilization quite like ripping someones guts out with "cold hard steel".
Here are a few. Correct me if I am wrong on origin. Top to bottom, German Mauser, Romanian, Yugoslavian and a Colt US M8A1
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.
A Pattern 1888, 2 P1907s, and a No4 Mk1 cruciform.
I have a few.
I gave @eddie0225 a nice French cruciform....Show that thang Ed.
WW1 German Mauser KS98 Sawback
Somewhere a PRC or Korean dude is having a nasty flashback.
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.
