Default M5 bayonet

After the North Store report of only four M5 bayonets in very poor condition in stock, I thought I would roll the dice and order one from the Estore. It looks like new with no wear to it or the scabbard.

Nice. It's been awhile since I've ordered a bayonet from the E store. The last I saw all the E store M5A1's were Greek returns that had numbers stamped on them. May have to give it another try.

Out of curiosity, what numbers are you referring to that identify a Greek return?

The Greeks often put numbers and Greek letters on the guard for identification purposes. Many of the CMP bayonets will have these and are most often an indication of Greek usage. There was a bayonet points article about this...but it is no longer active.

A lot of the M1 Bayos, full size and cut downs, the CMP sold that were from Greece had numbers stamped of front of the cross guard. I've never seen an example of the numbers on an M5/M5A1.

Picked this up off Craigslist this weekend.




Came with these.


M5 has a bit of surface rust but not bad. Couldn't pass it up, will decide later what to do with these.

(Edit: see that it links to all the photos, not sure on that, sorry)

Try this link and look at #3...Greece. You will see the numbers on the guard.
