I wanted to know what this bayonet is that I have. I believe that its a Garand and have been told so. On the blade it has the ordanance bomb w/AFH above and 1943 below. It also has AFH on the handle (no grips). What is it and who made it. - myers

Yes,it's an M-1 bayo. Made by American Fork and Hoe. And,I think they are still in business,making garden tools,and sold under several other names. Not positive about that though.

1943 was the last year that the 16" M1905/42 bayonet was made. Most ended up being cut down to 10" blades. You can get the black plactic grips from Sarco , or Springfield Sporters.
