Default M4 bayonet with an aluminum grip?

I recently ran across a bayonet very similar to this one. It's a Case M4 with an aluminum grip. Does anyone know what the history on these are? Thanks.

The best information that I have at this time indicates that these grips (which will also fit the M7) were a commercial product available possibly in the 1970s or so. There were ads in some of the Shotgun News and similar magazines at that time.

The M4 would have had to had holes drilled in the tang for the two screws to pass through, and they are more commonly found on the M7.
