The Model of 1905 bayonet was made for the U.S. M1903 Springfield rifle. This designation was changed to Model 1905 in 1917, and then to M1905 in 1925, when the army adopted the M designation nomenclature. The M1905 bayonet has a 16-inch (40.6 cm) blade, and a 4-inch (10.16 cm) handle. The bayonet also fits the U.S. M1 Garand rifle. In 1943, a shorter, 10-inch (25.4 cm), bladed version was produced with a black molded plastic handle, and designated the M1 bayonet.
