Welcome to the Love M-1 Grands club. Send me your address I will send you a couple of bandoliers with the clips in them (when I find the right ammo can). I shot an M-1 Grand National Match I bought from a friend and won the state championship before I got a Winchester from CMP for $121.95 (to give you an idea when). I got a couple of cases of ammo complete for Grands. I traded the rifles off when I got a Belgian FN-49 in 30-06, that loads with 5 round strippers or single rounds, that outshot both of them. (Colonel Townsend Whelen was right "only an accurate rifle is interesting")

Thanks again Ron they are great parts. :)

Neato Pitchy.....that's the long bladed one. I don't follow military guns religiously but "I think" the long bladed ones were Geneva convention outlawed. Mine is from the 50's and the blade is much shorter.

Now...attach that bayonet as I command you to guard the sawmill and bayonet anyone attempting to mess with your shyt. Make sure it's real sharp as it's hard to get through a buffalo coat. :D ---6

I believe the long bayonet was the WW1 model for the 03. A lot of the long ones were cut down to the new length for the M1.

The one on the left is my bayonet for the M1...next to a Kbar fighting knife. Pitchy got a good buy at $35. I paid $50 for mine ....back in '94.---6

I believe this is the case. They used the longer ones on the M1 early in WW2, I'm pretty sure.


And Six,
No way would my buddy Pitchy run me through. Even if I was wearing my buffalo coat. :D
Right Pitchy?.........Pitchy?.........buddy..... :D

:lol: You guys sure try and get me in trouble, bayonet Jay wearing a buffalo coat at night under a full moon by the sawmill with wolves howling hmmmm :lol:
Nice bayonets Six, they made the 16 inch then shortened them to 10 later and i think even shorter at the end.
Yours are original i take it the one i got for 35 is a repo, a original 16 inch cost much more.
Here`s a old movie i watched yesterday that they are wearing long bayonets and some good shots of the Garand. 8)
The long bayonets look like they would of been in the way more than of usefulness.

I've heard the weight of the long ones had an effect on POA/POI also. Makes sense, I guess.

Was some interesting vids about the changes in bayonets on Matt Eastons Scholagladiatoria channel on youtube. His conclusion was that shorter blades were generally easier to use as fighting knives, which was one reason they became shorter over time, besides the unwieldiness of a long blade attached to the end of a rifle in trenches and close quarters.

Hes also got tons of interesting scholarly info about swords and old weapons of all sorts on his channel, as well as the use of them, which he teaches along with his wife in England. Not sport fencing, but old school sword fighting with many types of swords covered in various ways.

Pitchy there was a a few Garands at the show today... Some nice M94’s mixed in with them. About a dozen 410 M42’s from $995 on up. Oh I wish I rich instead of good looking! Todd/3leg
30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

Well, I'll be the first to comment before that hombre from Maine chimes in with more sweet talk. :D

You look good! Hey, thinking here......maybe we can have an "old mans army" right here at Leverguns. I figure Old Win can be a full bird Colonel ..Pitchy can be Master Gunnery Sergeant and I'll be General Patton as I have the most Colt Single Actions with everyone else fitting in between. (I'd be lucky to make first class latrine scrubber)

After I get back from Home Depot we will start roll call and in the meantime you guys can figure out where you want to fall in.

Pictures are a must along with some kind of a military gun. Helmets are optional but will add points.----6

Haha yeah it is. It's a Lufwaffe dress dagger. The other is actually a medics tool. The end is squared a little. One side of the blade has really nasty saw teeth for cutting wood for splints. The other side is sharp.
I have some other German stuff, too. Some of my relatives got it while touring Europe in the 40s.

Jay...I've handled some of those Nazi knives where the back is a saw blade.....those babies will cut through about anything. Never saw anything modern that's as good and these old knives/saws are 75 years old.

You did not answer me...can I have it? :D ----6

Hey! Where's Pitchy? Did he fall asleep on us in our time of glory?......maybe he is on guard duty..you know, out walking around in the snow with his Garand, helmet, and mess kit.......making the neighbors worry. :D ----6

Well, you got dibs, old buddy. Of course, you may have to wrestle the boys.......but otherwise..... :D
Yeah, where's Pitchy? I bet he dug a foxhole out by the sawmill, got tired cause the ground is froze, and fell asleep in it. We will have to leave him till morning, cause I ain't sneaking up on him with that M1. I seen the targets! :D

Well at least we know everything was in good hands, buddy.
He must have slept sound last night! :D
Keep a sharp eye out today, Pitchy. Never know what could happen. That "Mad Jack" hombre could be coming for your M1.........or maybe that sweet Colt .44!
Protect it all all cost! :D

Mmmmmm....got out of bed at noon today to the door knocking......or I'd still be in bed....it's now 2:30.........an old co worker buddy stopped over. We swapped lies for a couple of hours.......had a hard time falling asleep last night, laughing in my sleep due to these posts and Pitchy sitting in a foxhole with the M-1 and then patrolling the White House hanging out with Mrs. Trump. :D

Oh Lordy, another fun filled day on the horizon.......after I split some wood and feed the animals.......

I still say we can make some money by our posts...they should be "locked" and after paying a set amount, to be allowed in to see the entertainment. It sure beats, "Do you warm up your car before heading out? This post is pushing 5 pages.... :D .....in a couple of hours----6

Dang Pitchy....I'm still wearing shorts....65 and sunny out there. ......I'm still trying to get the motivation to split wood.....I fed the horse and came back in......phuck it......gimme a beer......wish I could but gotta keep it outta the house.

That Gunny guy from New Jersey sent the blackhawks this way.....they are buzzing above the house.....don't think the BAR is gonna be enough...........whoa! Incoming! boom...boom....glad I got my helmet on........

OK the rest of you...that will be $2 ........pay now as it's cheaper during the matinee....when Old Win wakes up and gets onboard, the price will be $3. The "happy hour" is $2 when it's just us but premium time comes when Old Win chimes in. Gunny is auditioning and if he passes, ...well, I have to pay him also so the matinee price will be $4 and $6 during prime time.(after 7 pm EST) Have your credit cards on standby.----6

Hey Pitchy...let's hear about those foxhole lighters....they look cool. (For those of you who want to hear about Pitchy's lighters, pay now and get a double bonus)
