Description

This is a nice clean ‘P1917’ bayonet made in ‘WWII’ for the ‘P17 30-06’ rifle. It can be differentiated from the ‘P13’ which it resembles by the markings on the blade. This example is marked to the blade with ‘1917’ over a ‘W’ in a circle, meaning manufacture by ‘Winchester’ and consequently a scarcer model, as ‘Winchester’ only made 500,000, compared to ‘Remington’ who made over 2 million. The other side of the blade carries the flaming grenade over ‘U,S’ and bending mark. The grips are wooden with two grooves cut across them which is where it resembles the ‘P13’ and was interchangeable with the ‘P13’ except for the ‘P17’ rifle being 30.06 instead of the British .303. The scabbard is good with leather, metalwork and stitching in good order *see images* is the standard American ‘P17’ version. These bayonets were often issued to the Home guard in ‘WWII’. See ‘Skennerton’ item B289 page 236. A scarce piece, for the collector. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 352. (US Bayonets)
