Kicking Off A New Collection

I've never been much of a bayonet or knife guy, but I had the chance to get this one as part of a trade deal for some M14 parts and thought it would be nice to have. Don't really know a whole lot about it, but it appears to be in great shape and all in working order.

Of course, any information that you guys can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

I hate it when that happens. Just when you think you've got everything, along comes a cool item and another collection starts. The hunt is half the fun.

Thanks from mountainmarty and Jersey Devil

Nice job Brian.
I picked up one of each mfg of the service grade 16" bayonets from CMP a few years ago. Some had the black Greek finish on them. I found after listening around of the forums that Naval Jelly does a nice job of removing the black without damaging the underlying finish.
Since then, they have been lubed and filed away in a box. Every once in awhile the thought of making up a display hits me. I still don't know why, other than a spur of the moment decision I ever bought them. Sure have better places to put the bucks.

Thanks from Jersey Devil

It looks to be a standard, early, long US M1905 Bayonet for the US Rifle, Cal 30, M1903 (Springfield). The SA marking indicates manufacture at Springfield Armory, itself. It seems in GREAT shape, for its age, with the correct, rough-hewn, walnut grips. EXCELLENT acquisition, my friend!

Thanks from Jersey Devil

Nice, now you have to find the scabbard for it and of course a WWI 1903 Springer with a finger grooved stock, with a 1918 sling and of course a helmet. And it goes with out saying some old vet from the VFW to hold it all. Seems that is how it works at my house.
An old vet.
