Default Question for Mr. Bayonet about PAL M1 bayonet

I have been looking for a PAL M1 beak/bowie cut bayonet.
After a couple of years I have not even seen one.
Were the PAL bayonets ever modified with the beak/knife/bowie point???

Only early PAL bayonets had a square fuller...then they were manufactured with round. Square fullers were the ones that it was recommended the beak be used when the modification was made. They might exist...but probably in relatively low numbers!!
