My Wife bought one of those for My early present.It was as described,serviceable.I forgot to take pictures when it came,but the tip was broke off,It has almost no finish,handguard is loose,and the top of blade was used as a hammer.I stone filed the edges off,and filed the tip back.Heavy mill marks on blade where something was scrubbed(where US markings usually are),also grip screw was set deep in grip,and screw head shredded.The scabbard is in very good condition US M7 marked.

You did a nice job dressing up the tip! The double HH marking on the scabbard indicates, I was told, it was made in Taiwan. Still, its an authentic piece, much better than any repro.

Thanks!When I first opened the box,I thought"Wow,just My luck",but as I was working on this I started to appreciate what I have.This is/was a Military implement,whichever Country supplied it's soldiers with these bayonets gave it a large part of it's Character and History.I often wonder if a lot of My rifle collection,and mil surp equipment have "seen action",well,there is no guessing here!This bayonet looks as if it were used to find hundreds of land mines,pry open thousands of crates,hammer countless tent stakes,and stop crazed charging enemies....it aint much to look at,and it may get a finish someday,but for now it will be looked at,and loved for what it is.

There is a certain feeling about a well used piece.One of my favorite guns is a well used old 10 guage damascus barreled single shot market hunters shotgun.No finish whatsoever and the wood has a million dings from being drug in and out of boats and blinds.LOL It just talks to you everytime I get it out.:)
