U.S WW2 M1/converted M1905 Garand Bayonet
Out of stock
Here we have a WW2 U.S M1/converted M1905 Bayonet, After testing in early 1943, the U.S. Army decided to shorten the M1905 bayonet’s blade to 10 inches (25.4 cm). Production of this new bayonet, designated the M1, began at the five remaining manufacturers by April 1943. Bayonet is produced by R.I.A (Rock Island Arsenal) and therefore a M1905 Scabberd is the M3 made of resin-impregnated cotton duck canvas with a metal throat, and was equipped with a wire hook hanger.
This 1906 manufactured “Knife” style converted by AFH (American Fork & Hoe) Bayonet is complete with its scabberd and belt hook. Scabberd is a nice WW2 example still retaining nearly all of its green paint! General condition is very good+.
Lovely wartime converted bayonet!
