Early U.S. M5 Knife Bayonet By Imperial & Scabbard By Imperial - BAYO 270

This is an early American M5 knife bayonet by Imperial. This early production bayonet has the early lever spring set at a shallower angle but this was found to be difficult to operate in the field. Some bayonets were found to have a loose fit on the rifles. Later bayonets were modified to become the M5-1 and M5 A1. This bayonet is marked on the crossguard with U.S.M5 IMPERIAL and carries a feint Government Department of Defence acceptance mark consisting of a stylized eagle surmounted by 3 stars. This replaced the old flaming grenade marks and was in use between 1955 and the mid 1960s. The bayonet has chequered black plastic grips secured by screw bolts. The bayonet is contained in its U.S. M8A1 olive green scabbard has a holed chape for a thigh cord which is a later version. See Martin J. Brayley, An Illustrated History of Bayonets on page 246. Price includes UK delivery. BAYO 270
