All five of mine that arrived today are 3/77 repack dated with metal reinforced tip M8A1 scabbards and probably BOC bayonets based on the tang lightning cuts and the right angle ricassos.

Do the altered M8 scabbards have the webbing cut and stitched longer or a new hanger entirely?

Neither, but I do have access to a security X-ray scanner.

From what I see, the wire hook was put through the original belt loop and a multiple stitch was added to hold in place. On most the thread is a slightly different color. The bayonets themselves are excellent and I am happy to have them. Most of the VCI wrapping is dated '67 or '68. I highly recommend to purchase.

Did you measure the length of the hanger to determine if itís the original M8 with a hook sewn in or a new A1 hanger?

Looks to be a mix.
