This WW2 US M1 bayonets blade has been shortened to 6 3/8 and thinned it to resemble the M4 bayonet blade. Korea used the designation "M5" for this bayonet, even though it was not actually a U. To avoid logistical confusion, the U. These bayonets were modified by the Koreans in the early 1960s to fit the U.
These bayonets are also found in the Korean KM8A1 scabbard or the US M7 scabbard. #The makers and inspection marks are. CROSSGUARD: underneath "WT" Wilde Drop Forge & Tool.
