Original M5A1 bayonet w/ M8A1 scabbard
M5A1 Bayonet, Good Condition with M8A1 Scabbard
Fast shipping and arrived better than expected; better than some of the more expensive listings on eBay. Mine appears as the one pictured. The tip and edge(s) are very sharp, though. It's an Imperial with serialized crossguard and no DAS stamp, suggesting it is from a foreign MAP recipient. As noted, the scabbard is ROK issue. Only disappointment is the loose crossguard. Hence, four-stars.
Very little Park finish remains. Blunted blade tip. Came with a S. Korean made K-M8A1 scabbard.
Crossguard is a little loose, not a big problem. other than that, locked right on my M-1 Garand as advertised and sharpened right up.
Good M5A1 bayonet.
As described, a good condition bayonet and an excellent condition K-M8A1 scabbard. The bayonet I received was made by Imperial. Fit is good on my M1. I'm happy with it, may have to get another. :)
blade was demilled-dull-hard to get sharpen
not the US M8A1 scabbard as pictured, but a K-M8A1(Korea used scabbard doctored up to look like a US-M8A1 scabbard-junk
A real deal
My bayonet was in very good condition and fits perfectly on my post war H&R Garand
