Default HotPoint T2 Bayonet

This is pretty interesting ... but a little out of my financial league.
Is there any reference material out there covering prototypes in depth?

Strangely enough, I really don't have a great deal of interest in any of the prototype / test bayonets. I have always been more interested in those that were standard and actually used. Not that I would turn one down if it came my way at a price that I could afford, but my budget has never stretched to that kind of money.

I have a copy of the Marine Corps tests on the T2 bayonet, they did not feel it superior to the M1. It was designed to be somewhat simpler to produce and less expensive, but just did not offer enough to make it worth the time and expense to change over.

Over the years I have handled a few of these. None were priced in the area of this one, my personal OPINION is that it is overpriced.
