Out in the Gold Country

Came across this while hitting the Antiques stores with my wife and her BFF. A WWI Springfield Armory 1918 bayonet cut-down by American Fork and Hoe for WWII and the M1 Garand, with a scabbard of Victory Plastics body and a Beckwith/New England Pressed Steel throat (B 1/9 N marking).

  1. Quite a nice find, sir.

    I have a little hardware store, just a couple blocks from the office, where I go to find the odd tool, now and then, and just to knock around at lunch some days. They have this kind of thing too. A box of bayonets here, some Swedish piss flasks an aisle over, and I even picked up a Swiss Stgw 57 rifle cleaning kit one day. Neat.

    You should have plenty of reach if you should ever need to put that spear on yer Garand and reach some Commie in the next county over.
