Gunshots surrey todayThanks for the pics. I'm now convinced that the wooden grip-slabs were originally on an older US M-1905 bayonet. All of the M-1 bayonet parts are completely interchangeable with those for the M-1905 bayonet and vice-versa. I'm now pretty sure it is not a Danish bayonet, but more likely an Italian one. I just don't have any more time to devote ... Going to buy a service grade SA M1 Garand, 384 rounds of Greek .30-06 ammo, and a cleaning rod kit. I've been wanting an M1 Garand for a long time and I'm now finally going to get one. Just sucks that it can take up to 30 days or more to get it though. It's better than when they had orders that were taking up to 3 or months though.
M1 Garand. During and after World War II, the U.S. loaned tens of thousands of M1 Garands to our allies. Among those allies were the Philippines and Turkey. Approximately 100,000 M1s have been returned and are, or were until very recently, being stored by the U.S. Army.
Overall bayonet is in Fine + shape. Blade has flaming bomb EN S & E US. Guard is marked with serial number. Scabbard throat is stamped on back side U.S. M7. The stamping near the buttplate is usually indicative of a so-called "Greek" M1903, which was sold in large quantities by the CMP in the 2002-2006 period. The stamping was made by the Greeks during their use of the rifle. It was supposed to be the last four digits of the serial number.
