The DrillMaster Bayonet is for the M1 Garand and M1903 rifles, it is a real bayonet, but the blade tip is rounded, it does not have a sharp edge and has welds for extra stability- there is also an unwelded version. Armed drill has a certain amount of danger; drilling bladed ups the ante considerably. The DrillMaster Bayonet is a ‘safer’ bayonet for Drillers.

About original bayonets

US WW2 made:

AFH – American Fork and Hoe
OL – Oneida Limited
PAL – Pal Blade and Tool
UC – Utica Cutlery
UFH – Union Fork and Hoe

Made post WW2 (mostly in the 1950s) in other countries. Excellent copies, parts usually interchangeable.

Italy – several possible letter markings, does not use the US Shell and Flame mark.
Denmark – marked FKF, no shell and flame.
Japan – marked N P with a J under the shell and flame.
Taiwan – marked 60-6 over KS (markings inverted), no shell and flame.
Norway – marked with a crowned ornate K over the shell and flame.
Greece – EN-S over the shell and flame

You will want to get a reproduction bayonet since real bayonets can be expensive and can also be collector’s items.

Stay away from these web sites (non-drill worthy bayonets)

      Hi Alex,

      Thanks for the question. I don’t have a time table at all since it is an initial funding issue (the tooling and then creation process). I will keep everyone updated through the website.

  3. I was wondering if this bayonet will work with the glendale M1 Garand if I were to tape the handle onto the gas cylinder/barrel (since it is missing the lug)
