Looks like a Garand bayonet.

Looks identical to the one the armed forces issued with the Remington rolling block in the 1880'ies.

I'm not overly familiar with bayonets, but that's what it looks like to me.

Clean it up, get some new grips for it, and if you don't have one already, get a rifle to attach it to.

It looks kinda like the bayonet I have for my M1 Garand.

I think one of the original 10-inch ones, as opposed to a 1903 longer bayonet that was cut down to 10" for the garand.

overall length is approx 16 1/2" in

blade is a little bit longer than 11 1/2"

no visible numbers or markings because of the rusted condition

Looks like is is for the Krag. The handel is wrong for the M1.
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 3:40:59 PM EDT
Does look like Krag, not for a rolling block.

I agree; it's for the Krag.

I took another close look and it does have a US marking near the hilt

This a Garand bayonet. Notice shape of the metal in the handle.


Yours is a US made 1917, for an Eddystone M1917 rifle or M1897 Shotgun. It would also fit an Enfield P14 series rifle


If it had a hole drilled in the metal of the pommel, and the hole in the hilt were closer to the blade, then I'd say it it could be also a Enfield pattern 1907 for the SMLE No.1 rifle

Where did you find it?

In that condition, I don't think that it'll ever be able to be mated to a rifle again. The button that hold the bayo in place looks hopelessly rusted. I hope I'm wrong.

eta: It is a pattern 17, go get a M97 shotty

It's a Krag Bayonet. It's probably from Old Farmer Joes barn. Use a bit of oil or such and see if you can raise the markings on the blade in front of the quillon. There will be a US on one side and a year on the other.
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 5:10:16 PM EDT
Some type of Mauser bayonet is my guess. Looks very similar to my 98k bayonet.
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 5:21:15 PM EDT
Here is one that I have, it is marked with the Ordinance Department emblem, S A for Springfield Armory, and dated 1917. I don't know what it is intended to fit, but it does fit a M1 Garand, but is much too old for the M1 and too young for the Krag, possibly intended for the Enfield?

The model 1905 bayonets, like yours, fit both M1903/A1/A3 rifles and M1 Garands
