Read the updated review In my earlier review of the Denix M1 Garand I wrote that it does not take a genuine bayonet. But with some patient filing away at the pot metal bayonet lug and barrel shroud, it will. All you need is a small flat metal file as shown in the photos (these are commonly sold in sets of 5 files). Most of the filing is needed at the bottom of the bayonet lug. A bit less at the inside of the bayonet lug at the sides and at the front. A lot of filing is also needed on the barrel shroud. In the photos you can tell by the blank metal where I have filed. The trick is to be patient and to keep trying to fit the bayonet until it easily slips on. The last part I filed at was inside the front of the bayonet lug, so now the bayonet even clicks in place as it should.
