Garand bayonet


Recommended Posts

Got this old girl the other day,  it's an m1 garand  officially shortened from 16 inches to 10 inches , it was manufactured by PAL & is dated 1943 ,the  scabbard  is an m3 & was manufactured by Detroit Gasket . The bayonet is not mint by any means,  but I love the been there & done it patina on it.

Utica Cutlery (UC)
Union Fork & Hoe (UFH)

Oneida (OL)
American Fork & Hoe (AFH)

That you can fully see the date on a PAL bayonet is a minor miracle.  Good score!  👍
