Fit my 1918 manufactured 1903 Springfield perfectly; tight with no alteration (gentle tapping into place or to remove)(the release button worked well for the scabbard and the bayonet mounting lug). I appreciated the all black theme: blade, handle, scabbard. Looks like it belongs. An attractive reproduction. D**n 16 inches is long and definitely impressive. The 1905 version (with blackened blade, not available) might have been closer to technically correct (different scabbard) but I wouldn't want any thing different. The M1 Garand and scabbard version was perfect. Thanks.
