    Hello, this is Julekpl again. I was wondering if any of you could help me with some bayonet questions. I have an M1 Carbine and I wanted to get an original bayonet for it. Is there a significant difference between M1 carbine bayonets and M1 Garand bayonets? Thanks!

    Yes there is a Big difference.
    The top photo is an M1 Carbine the second photo is m1 garand. The m1 garand has two variants Long and Short. Short bayos are cut down from the normal 16in bayos.

    Yes, there's a big difference. The M1905, the M10 and M5 are all different from the M4 bayonet. Early M4s will have a leather washer handle, the late ones will have the hard plastic scales.

    in this pic, the M1905 is on the top, then the next 2 are M1905s that were cut down to the new M10 length. I think they changed around 1942. The bottom one is an M10
