Details

Made by Rock Island Arsenal in 1917, this bayonet was refurbished at some time and does not appear to have seen use since. The metal has the parkerised finish and is in excellent condition with some very minor blemishes only. The grips are wood and are affixed to the handle by a single screw.

This bayonet comes with an original and uncommon M3 scabbard. The scabbard has seen use however, is in very good condition.

Designed for use with the Model 1903 rifle, the Model 1905 bayonet replaced the rod bayonet originally designed for this rifle after these were found to be unserviceable. Between 1905 and 1922 the bayonets were made at Springfield Armory and the Rock Island Arsenal. Until 1917 the bayonet had 406mm (16") blade with a 'bright' or polished finish. The handles were blued with two wood grips. In 1917 the blades were blued and in 1918 were parkerised. In 1922 production of the bayonet was halted until resuming again in 1942.
