    M1917 bayonet. What is this thing?

    javascript:;

    Saw this M1917 bayonet on ebay now. Item no. 324325059175 Never seen anything like it. Can anyone identify it? Trying to post a pic.

    Thanks! https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/G2UAA...T3/s-l1600.jpg

    Might be easier if you just post a link to the auction instead of an individual picture...or collect the pics and email them to me and I'll post them for posterity here... It LOOKS like a #5 rifle ring on a 1917 bayonet but the pic is SO bad, the date makes it look like one of the Chinese copies. If we can just see the auction we can see all the pics.
    Regards, Jim

    Jim, It's Very Possible that this one here which is also being Sold here on Ebay is just like the same one which is in Question. Item number 111799405732 what do you think ?
    I left Plenty more meat on the Table.

    Well Frank, if that's the type he has then it's one of the repros being currently sold to fill the empty spot. They aren't as good as they look in pics. They don't cost much but that's what they're worth, almost nothing.
    Regards, Jim

    I didn't realize they were making reproduction 1917 bayonets. I should have known. Thanks for your replies.

    Jim, I Never really collected any of these Types of Bayonets. I've only collected the U.S. Trench Knifes. I think those are pretty sweet and the M4 Bayonets. I would definitely love to have a smaller one of these for a Display I happened to put together after picking up this M4 Camillus from that CIA Operative Estate Sale.
