The M-1905 Bayonet was adopted by the US military as a knife bayonet for the Model 1903 Rifle after it was determined necessary for the “modern” trench warfare of the early 1900’s. Once the bayonet was officially adopted, production began at both the Springfield Armory and the Rock Island Arsenal. The Rock Island Arsenal produced just under 1/2 million total bayonets and this low run means originals are scarce today.

Ours replicates an original issue 1906 (first year of production for RIA) of the famed bayonet expertly. The early bayonets had bright blades and blued hilts and were marked on the ricasso “RIA 1906”, which our replica faithfully shows. The M-1905 Bayonet is the core of many bayonet collections and are highly sought after, but they are extremely scarce today. Replicated using an original for authenticity and employing the same materials, this is a collector grade reproduction. Includes early spec scabbard of wood covered in leather with metal throat and standard canvas Krag-style hanger. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Good craftsmanship, however the socket for the muzzle to fit through was a little small. I'm sure with a little filing it will fit just fine. Originals would, much of the time needed to be fit to an individual rifle. Much better quality than other's I've had, would deffentaly recommend to anyone looking for a high quality reproduction.

I ordered one of these M-1905 Springfield bayonets for my Springfield 1903. The “ring” was too small to fit on the muzzle and the locking slot, where the catch is was too small to fit the front barrel guard bayonet lug. It wouldn’t fit my Smith Corona 1903-A3 either. After talking to a service representative I wasn’t confident that they understood what the problem was and decided against sending it back, to maybe receive another one with the same issues. I just ordered another one. Well, that second one has the same issues. I enlarged the ring with a round file, and got a replacement (NOS) 1903 front barrel band to modify to make the bayonet fit, which it now does. For the A-3 I will be replacing the original front barrel band with a modified (NOS) 1903 barrel band and I’m sure I can make it work like on the 1903. “Replicates expertly” and “collector grade reproduction” I would expect to fit. On a display, from ten feet away you can’t tell the difference unless you actually try to put it on the rifle. Otherwise they are very nice, I just wasn’t expecting to have to put work into them. I also ordered a M-1917 for another rifle, which fit perfectly. Luisyamaha

This item is on eternal back order. I placed an order for it on January 10th 2014 and it has been 6 weeks and it is still on back order with no expected date (per customer service). I have cancelled by order. I suggested that to improve their customer service they should let you know when you attempt to purchase something that is on back order. Very disappointed in my first purchase from Atlanta cutlery.

Frank - We sell hundreds of these yearly and have not had problems. It appears you have received a defective bayonet. Please contact customer service at 800-883-0300 so they can issue a pick up slip.

This bayonet does not even fit on the weapon it was intended for. Useless & a waste of hard earned dollars.

A Very Accurately Made Bayonet Which Is Hard To Tell From The Originals. Fits My '03 Springfield Excellent. For The Price 'Ya Can't Beat It. :) R.A.M. In Virginia
