"...and one Imperial." Thank you sir!

I opened one of my two BOC plastic packages and Wow is that a lightweight bayonet compared to the M1's. Almost feels fake it's so lightweight. But... sharp enough to cut paper dropped onto it.

Default DAS marked bayonet package

http://i1333.photobucket.com/albums/...ps1woakxpg.jpg

This is the M7 repack I received that had the DAS mark on the box of the sealed bayonet. I never broke the seal to open the bayonet. The NSN number shows itís a 1969 BOC bayonet. The scabbard was an M8A1 TWD.

Two points:
1. That number is not a NSN but is its predecessor, a Federal Stock Number (FSN). The NSN system was not implemented until 1974.
2. The stock number does not indicate manufacturer but the contract number below it probably does. The stock number for an individual bayonet w/o scabbard would be the same, regardless of manufacturer.

Same #'s on the two I bought from the Sept/Oct CMP batch.

Only difference is mine has "A -" and yours just has A on bottom line. Not sure if the dash means anything.

Opened one (some Thick plastic!) and it's BOC as I was told it would be.
Now that it's been exposed to air, does it need a coat of oil?

I would put a coating on it

Yep that's the DAS stamped box mine came in. Actually pretty cool to have, I don't think they used the DAS much later than 69

FWIW, I just today received another 3 M7 bayonets (yes, I have a bayonet problem!).



It looks like they have gotten into a different batch, as all three were 1973 repacks in a slightly different box (little darker brown, little taller) and a different label layout. All 3 were BOC bayonets, but all were in USGI sealed repacking, kind of a brown paper with inner plastic film. All were brand new, the parkerizing still had the crystally finish. The scabbards were well wrapped new PWH M8A1's. edit, correction, one was a VIZ marked scabbard.



Just thought I would post in case anybody is tracking these.

I opened one this morning from this latest batch. Someone messed up; what I got was not a M7 but an Imperial M6:


Still the M8A1 scabbard however
