Very nice web belt in excellent
condition for the .30-40 Krag rifle. It has some
discolorization but no fraying or tears. It has the
double loop for a total of 100 rounds. A double
strap or suspender harness were often issued with
these belts for good reason. (Put 100 rounds of
rifle ammo in your pockets and see how long your
pants stay up.) These were used with and without the
large square U.S. or state marked belt buckles.
M1907 Enfield Bayonet
This is the bayonet commonly
used with the #1 MkIII SMLE Enfield rifle in early
WW2 until they came up with that silly spike one. It is
dated 1910 and was made by Chapman. The leather
scabbard is marked Mangrovite '42 which is an
Both bayonet and scabbard are
in very good condition.
This is a very nice
canteen with original canvas cover in excellent
condition and has the original leather strap
with brass hooks. The leather is still pretty
supple with a couple of creases from storage and
slight surface cracking at the sharp bends.
Strap has "Rock Island Arsenal" stamped in
unfortunately at one of the bends so it is hard
to make out. Also has the inspector's initials.
Original stopper with chain is still attached.
Really nice item that would be correct for
Spanish American War period.
in M10 Scabbard
This U.S. bayonet-knife M7 was made 1980–1984 by the
Imperial Knife Co. of Providence, Rhode Island. Imperial delivered 194,000 M7 bayonets to
the U.S. Government in the 1980’s. The Bayonet-Knife Scabbard M10 was developed in 1987, as
the supply of M8A1 scabbards began to run out. The M10
scabbard is made of injection-molded plastic, with an
integral nylon web belt hanger.

The M4 Second production bayonet resulted from
post-WW2 experimentation to address the shortcomings
of the original M4 with the leather handle. The two most significant
differences are the two-piece molded plastic grip
scales and the wider crosspiece. Production began in
1954 and continued at least into the late 1960s.
