The Model of 1917 bayonet Page

This one is also rampant with recent reproductions. In the past we would occasionally see a remarked blade but they were so common and so inexpensive it was not worth the trouble to the fakers of the world. That is changing somewhat today.

Know what you are looking for and what you are looking at. These are all fantasy pieces with reproduction scabbards. Beware.

This is a real M1917 as made by Remington with the center of the circle ground down and a W stamped in it. It fooled me until I took it out into the light.

This is a current model of one reproduction available. Note the scabbard is not like any ever made so it is easy to spot. The markings on the bayonet are a give away.

Another current version now available, this one is not marked like any real bayonet. The scabbard is much closer but still easy to tell the difference.

This is a Remington with the Winchester W engraved in it. Note the Remington eagle and inspection marks on the reverse as well as the horrible engraving job.
