There are experimental clamp on bayonets pictured in WBII, although they look very different than this one. It does look like there is a wingnut sticking out on the right rear.

CCNL 362-12 has a picture from a DVD "crusade in the Pacific" Is is not quite clear but shows a M1 or M1905E1 bayo on a carbine

CCNL 367-7 has a nice picture of Technical Sgt Richard S. Westhoven with a carbine  that has a prototype lug and a T8 knife which evolved to the M4

The carbine certainly did not replace the 45 for this soldier.

Col. Raff must be the security detail for the first lady.
Here is a picture of his book:

He appears to have a .45 as well as the Carbine.

Since our Carbine of the Day has the draw about the bayonet.
I've cleared it to also post this picture of a 'Improvised Bayonet' on a training rifle.
Dated Feb 1942.
It will need to be trimmed down so I'll try the picture and include a link to it.

If duct-tape had been invented pre WWII, it may have shortened the war. Imaginative soldiers could have conjured up about any wonder-weapon.

@Charlie,  always a pleasure to help. 
The thanks go to those who participate and contribute. 
There is a little button at the top right where members can  thank the poster.

Maybe we should make that a vote and see whose posted picture is most thanked?

@charlie. Great picture! Can’t say I get a warm and fuzzy seeing the wood partially submerged underwater, but I understand why.

@new2brass - i would be happy seeing this thread go for a month straight or more.

Yep...
Plenty of weight added and most likely would rub your shoulder raw,
But the Bling Factor.......... Would surely add some pep to his step.

Atta Boy Wayne keep the streak alive Thumbs Up
Nice find.

I think that those might be grenade cartridges on that sling, just my guess.

Carbine Day 10
Was late Oct-early Nov 42.
Underwood's first shipment to Ordnance (along with Rock Ola) were I believe November 1942.
It feels like a UEF doesn't it ??
But odds are it's a Inland.. IMO

Day 10 picture
Can almost make out a name on receiver, but not quite. Can kind of see a few digits on SN. They appear to be of the larger variety. We need a picture editing expert for forensics.

Day 12 picture
@W5USMC - Great picture! An early? carbine still in use in 45. Type 1 flip, band, early cam slide (I think) and a 2 rivet hand guard. Would love to see how it is attached in the sling well.
Also, thanks for providing the link. Lots of great pics in there!
