This U.S.Model 1918 Rifle scabbard fits the 1918 dated 03 like a glove.

Here’s another neat Cavalry item that goes well with the Rifle and Scabbard. A 1918 dated U.S. Model 1913 Patton Cavalry Saber. It was designed to use like a Lance.

Here is some more U.S. Cavalry stuff that I just dug out.
The cover or hat is a size 7 3/8 to 7 1/2.
The 1917 S&W revolver was made in 1918. So was the 1911 Colt.
The campaign hat is made of the thicker, high quality felt that was still being used by some private contractors at a time when the Military had already switched to a thinner, less expensive felt.

Fred. Where did you get the carrier for the Patton Calvery Sword? I've got one and it needs a carrier.

I found them along with the sword wrist knots on eBay. I was going to get a period Mclellan saddle and the rest of the gear for awhile, but I’d be tempted to saddle up one our horses with it all and it’d probably have a real problem with that, so I never did. Besides, I don’t have an interest in re enacting or in imagining life in the field for a combat soldier of WWI.
It IS good to complete each of my three Patton sabers though. I don’t know why I have or thought I needed Three or even One. More stuff to trip over and gather dust now. I think I’ll start disposing of it all soon along with a lot of other stuff I can’t see keeping around.
I’ll start posting some WTS adds on it all soon.

I just remembered that it is What Price Glory who makes and sells them.

The bore cleaning pull through and brush for the Rod Bayonet 1903 are quite different from the later design.

Each of the Nine pockets of this particular ammo belt was designed for just One five round stripper clip of 30-03. The pockets didn’t shrink. This early belt must be very rare because in over 40 years of collecting, it’s the only one of this type I’ve seen.
