The M5A1 Bayonet was the standard issue bayonet for all US military forces using the M1 Garand rifle. With the M5A1 our soldiers were issued a combat proven bayonet to go with their battle tested M1 Garand. This combination gave our soldiers a winning advantage over the enemy in Korea. Now you can add this authentic USGI M5A1 bayonet to your collection.
The M5A1 saw considerable service during the Korean War when it was first issued to soldiers. When the Korean War first began, soldiers were having difficulty mounting the previously issued M1 Garand bayonets while wearing gloves. This need drove the design of the M5A1 bayonet which was a completely new bayonet for the M1 Garand and was quickly praised by soldiers for the performance it provided.
With the addition of the M5A1 the M1 Garand became a complete weapons platform suitable for combat operations of the Korean War. There are many stories from Korean combat veterans of enemy charges where bayonets were used to help stop the advance. The size, length, and weight of the M1 Garand made it very effective as a mounting point for the M5A1 for use when ammunition was low or conditions were more close quarters combat. Now you can add an authentic M5A1 bayonet to your collection and experience first hand shooting an M1 Garand with a bayonet attached.
