The 1905 bayonet model was made for the US M1903 Springfield rifle.
This designation was changed to Model 1905 in 1917 and then to M1905 in 1925 when
 the army adopted the nomenclature of designation M.
The M1905 bayonet has a 16-inch (40.6 cm) steel blade and a 4-inch (10.16 cm) handle
 with wooden or plastic handles. The bayonet also fits the US M1 Garand rifle.
From 1943 to 1945, a shorter 10-inch (25.4 cm) version was produced with grips
 in black or dark red molded plastic, and designated as M1 bayonet.
A number of M1905 bayonets were withdrawn from service, their blades were used
 such as M1 bayonets.

The M1905 bayonet was produced from 1906 to 1922 by Springfield Armory and Rock Island Arsenal.
 The blade and the handle frame were forged in one piece with a wide full of
 square shape and the guard was attached to this assembly through two holes with pins
 cone-shaped steel.

The ribbed grips were made of walnut wood and attached to the handle with a screw.
The screw also held the latch mechanism, a button under the cross guard,
 which was also used to fix the bayonet to the rifle bayonet lug
