History of the M-1905 Bayonet and beyond-

The M1905 Bayonet was designed to be used with the .30 caliber U.S. M1903 Springfield rifle. Variants of the M1903 rifle were produced during World War I and World War II by Springfield Armory, Remington Arms, Rock Island Arsenal, and Smith-Corona Typewriter. The blade is 16 inches (40.6 cm) long, and the handle is 4 inches (10.1 cm) long.

The M1905 bayonet also fits the .30 caliber U.S. Rifle M1, or M1 Garand. In 1942, the same bayonet design (with plastic instead of wood for the handle) was again produced and renamed the M1942 bayonet, which was manufactured to keep up with wartime production of the M1 Garand.

History of the M-1910 Scabbard and beyond-

The original M1905 scabbard had a wooden body with a rawhide cover and used a wire belt hanger which went over and around the supporting belt. The M1910 scabbard had a canvas covering with a leather tip. The belt hanger was replaced with wire cartridge belt hooks. The M1910 scabbard was the primary scabbard used during the first world war. Earlier M1905 scabbards were modified by replacing the belt hanger with belt hooks. The green leather body M1917 scabbard for the M1917 Enfield bayonet was approved as a substitute standard for the M1905 bayonet. The M3 scabbard was developed early in the second world war to replace the earlier scabbard. The M3 scabbard had a fiberglass body with a metal throat and was equipped with cartridge belt hooks.

Please note, some fitting (filing) may be required to mount on your rifle.
