Mine had a total of four stickers( two are on the back side) and one paper tag. Am I right in assuming these would all be considered rack numbers?

Thanks. The middle part of the middle scabbard body is leather, with steel fittings. I really lucked up getting that one.

Default Italian M4 Bayonets

They work as advertised (donít worry, wood is soft)

I got the three I ordered yesterday. Delivery person delivered to wrong address, so I had to chase it down.
2 of the three looked like new, one still in cosmo
They were both AET 1958 marks.

The last one was 1955 AET, but it was bent noticeably and the scabbard was cracked on both seams due to the bent. Hard to say if it was that way before or after it was shipped, but I called them and got a return label to get it exchanged.

The wait time was about 10 minutes, but once I got a person, they were really helpful and understanding. Can't wait to give these to my pops for Fathers day (who are both Vietnam vets). They both have carbines, but no bayos!

Ohh, and I couldn't help opening the box with an M1 garand 16" bayo - even if it is a repo - felt appropriate - freeing its brethren from captivity. Pics to come and big thanks for this thread - I would have skipped right over the deal otherwise.

Got mine yesterday, 1957 looks like AET but very lightly struck. Scabbard looks perfect except for a 3 digit number in black marker. The bayonet itself looks new, not a mark on the blade or the plastic grips. Still has some cosmolene/grease in the scabbard, wipe the blade down before inserting, then it comes out greasy again. Probably stick it in front of my space heater for a bit this weekend to get the grease out. I'm tempted to order a couple more now.

Mine came Saturday, AET 1958 used but not abused, worth the price. I also got a can of the Malaysian .308, will try it next week in my Navy Garand.

Is there a consensus on the best place to order these? Who has the best condition or are they all about the same?
