I have mentioned several times that I am a big believer in the bayonet. Nothing says don't invade my personal space/get off my lawn like a bayonet being held by someone willing to use it.

Here some old school with a modern example.

note on the USMC bayonet, to me it is one of the best examples of a modern bayonet....very useful and practical. Something the M7 was not...we used to can it the MRE opener....as that is all it was useful for, the M9 was much better but still not what the USMC bayonet is. I got this one used for $90 and it was obviously carried but never left the sheath...and is razor sharp.

I don't have photos of most of my bayonets mounted, but here are a few on some of my Brits:

And some rifles have no choice but for the bayonets to remain mounted (although not necessarily deployed). Big Grin

Thanks! It's certainly prettier than my other, more worn and "plain jane" Garand.

Both are CMP Service Grades, but the tiger striped HRA is definitely in better condition than the Springfield.

Not a rifle but I use them to repel "boarders".

A 12ga with a bayonet is maybe the ultimate " hey friend you're a bit too close " remedy

Thanks! It's a Springfield Armory dated 1917, which started out as a 16" M1905 and then was refurbished and shortened during WW2 to its current 10" M1905E1 "Bowie point" configuration.

I'm still on the hunt for a reasonably priced unaltered 16" M1905 or M1942 bayonet to go with my M1903, but those are getting pricey and hard to find.

Yes they are. I have two cut downs however, neither one were cut into the Bowie style.

Spear points are primarily seen on WW2-era M1942 bayonets that were converted. Bowie points are more commonly seen on WW1-era M1905 bayonets that were converted, although some early conversions of M1905s also had spear points before they discovered that this had a major downside and switch to "bowie" points.

The issue was that these WW1-era M1905 bayonets had a deep and square-cut fuller down the blade, which when ground down to a centered spear point, put the point of the blade at an overly thin part of the bayonet and it could easily be damaged. So they eventually switched to an offset "bowie" point to allow for a point at the thickest part of the converted blade.

The later WW2-era production 16" M1942 bayonets had a shallower and rounded fuller, which still allowed plenty of meat in the middle of the blade when ground down to a centered spear point.

So if you want a bowie profile, keep an eye out for earlier (WW1) dated bayonets that have been cut down, and they'll be more likely to have one.

Just a heads up and I have no interest in or am a part of the sale for
you Rogue. A nice uncut M1905 S.A. 1906 dated Bayo popped up in the the CMP forum Bolt Action sales section. It seems to have the WWII era plastic/Bakelite/plastic infused with fibers scabbard not the original WWI scabbard if that matters to you.

Thanks, but $320 is more than I'm wanting to spend.

I know they're selling for that now, but I'm not desperate for one, and am willing to be patient for a good deal.

I was thinking the same thing but, I didn’t know how much you were willing to spend.
