yp221 is correct.
Most of the brown grips were used by AFH. They were made by Columbia Plastic Products. Their logo is a "C" with a "PP" inside the "C". It was made with a secondary material as a backup in case the Phenol-Formaldehyde supply was interrupted. The brown grips were made with Cellulose Acetate Butyrate. About 100,000 of these grips were made until reports came in that the material would deteriorate when cleaned with certain solvents. This information comes from Gary Cunningham's book US Knife Bayonets & Scabbards.
With all that said, brown grips have been found on most if not all of the manufacturers of M1905 bayonets.

Thank you for your prompt response, this area is not in my wheel house.
Glad I could help. The late Gary Cunningham's website http://www.usmilitar...onet_points.htm is a great place to find info on U.S. bayonets and knives.
