Received my one a couple weeks ago. And I'll know what it is on Christmas morning. Funny, I bought a Bren-Dan decades ago at a SoCal gun show. And, not knowing any better I neatly sharpened all edges. It sits in front of the keypad I'm typing on now, out of sight.

Default Midway NOS Bayonets

I received two NOS 1971 contract bayonets today from Midway, both were Conetta. These may have been purchased through a Bren Dan contract but both were definitely made by Conetta.

Thanks for all the replies. I am starting to think that Bren-Dan used a substantial number of leftover Conetta marked parts. I saw the 1971 dated Bren-Dan shipping crates in the Midway pictures, so there is little doubt they were supplied to the army by Bren-Dan. The evidence suggests that Bren-Dan marked M7's may be even rarer than originally thought by collectors, if Bren-Dan was fulfilling a substantial portion of their USGI contract with Conetta marked bayonets.

Arrived today. Conetta, 100%, untouched, new-in-box perfect and WD scabbard, also 100%, new, perfect. Good deal what's not to like?

Opened the Grade 1, $36.69, that I ordered back in November. A Conetta, that except for being stuck in and out of a scabbard at least once is NOS. Very purty.

Over the past couple months, I have seen multiple reports of Imperial's and TMN's, even a stray Camillus. But I have seen no Brendan's posted at all, here or on other websites. I find it odd, since the Midway descriptions prominently talked about their stock being of either Conetta or Brendan manufacture.
I think I got one of the stray Camillus and a Conetta. Packed away from moving and too lazy to read my past posts. Both looked brand new.
