WTB M1905 Bayonet
Looking for a 16" blade original, M1905 Bayonet with for my Garand.
Can't stand the thought of a Made in China stamp on a repro.

I wish you luck in your quest. Un-altered ones are hard to find. You may want to check the WWII forums/re-enacting forums. There was one on the CMP forum a while back.

Keep an eye on the CMP Forums and the Trader subforum on Gunboards. They show up from time to time, but be prepared to jump on it quickly, and pay a steep price.

Pre-pandemic, there were always several at the Kane Co gun show.

Watch out for M1905 bayonets in the USN MKI scabbard from the plastic Navy training bayonet vs the M3 or earlier generations of scabbards.

They do repro the M3 and earlier M1910 scabbards as well. The Greeks also repaired US M3 scabbards with metal tips which I personally don't care for.

Thanks for the advice.
I will keep my eyes open but may end up going for a 10" model.
Its not for collecting and I have no need to over spend for a conversation piece.

If you don't mind one that is a little salty, check out Gunderson Militaria: http://www.gundersonmilitaria....onetm1942afh1943.jpg

I think that would clean up a bit for $150.

I had checked Sarco but all the USGI were out of stock.
Maybe I will put in for a back order.
