TradeU.S Model 1917 Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 700.
c 1910Antique yes
This is a very nice M1917 bayonet made in WW1 for the P17 30-06 rifle. It was made by Winchester thus making it a scarcer model, as Winchester only made 500,00 compared to Remington who made over 2 million. It is marked to the blade with 1917 over W on one side and the Flaming Grenade over U.S on the other. The blade is virtually mint. Blade length 17”. Total length including scabbard 23 ½”. It is contained in its green leather scabbard with belt hook but has also been fitted with a 1939 home guard pattern leather frog, as these bayonets were used extensively by the Home guard in WW2. A very nice complete home guard set. See Skennerton item B289, page 236. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 700
