Can anybody tell if this Remington bayonet is WW1 or WW2 ?

pileofvinyl- You have what appears to be a USN, Lee Rifle Model 1895 bayonet.  These were Spanish-American War, & Boxer Rebellion era rifles, and bayonets.  SKIP

This appears to be a Remington No. 5 rolling block bayonet that has gone to bubba. The lower quillion has been crudely cut off, the blade given a false edge, and the press stud lost along the way. The Lee Navy bayonet had a taller muzzle ting of smaller diameter than this example appears to have.

The bayonet cannot be abolished for the reason, if for no other, that it is the sole and exclusive embodiment of that willpower which, alone, both in war and everyday life, attains its object.General M. I. Dragomirov

Boy! You guys get up early.  (I'm a west coast guy)

Here's a picture of an 1895 Lee Navy handle, made by Remington.  You can see the greater height of the the muzzle ring.

The second picture is of the bayonet that fits the Number 5 rolling block.  It also fits the Remington Lee rifle 1899. 

Your bayonet looks more like the 1899 bayonet.

Remington did not have many US contracts.  The 1899 was mostly exported to other countries like Mexico and South American countries. However, the 1899 was used by the Michigan Militia for a time.
