Nice collection of scabbards for the 1917 bayonet.

For a rifle that was only a "secondary" US model that was developed for the British initially, it is interesting that its bayonet had a much longer life on its own.

1917 Bayonets produced during World War One for the 1917 rifle were also used on other weapons as well, particularly various types of Trench shotguns. They continued to be used into the VietNam war - and there were even a number of them produced, along with scabbards at that late date.

Speaking of which, here's a recent M1200 repo project with Vietnam era M1917 bayonet.



They are impressive looking bayonets on a military shotgun.

The bayonet is actually a Canadian Arsenal (CA) for my M1200.

Okay, I'm keeping this one, but I'll let you know if I spot another one (I got it on eBay a while back).

I used to see Indian-made M1917 scabbards. Nicely done, gone now.
