Vietnam War era unused Imperial M7 bayonet, original PWH M8A1 composition scabbard. Excellent overall condition, considering the age – scarce this nice.

Original Vietnam War era M7 bayonet manufactured by Imperial Cutlery. The M7 bayonet was first issued in 1964; it was originally designed for the M16 rifle but it will fit several later-produced US combat rifles, including the current M4 carbine.

This specimen is in rare unused / unissued condition with original finish and factory edge. The bayonet is about 12″ / 30.4 cm overall; parkerized blade is about 6-7/8″ / 17.5 cm long. The blade has not been re-sharpened, original factory edge is razor-sharp; the tip is intact; some minor surface rust stains on the blade from improper storage are noted for accuracy (cleanable). Ricasso is unmarked as intended; muzzle ring/guard is stamped US M7/ IMPERIAL. Black plastic handle grips are near-excellent with no chips or dings; all parts are tight with no play. Original and also unused M8A1 composition scabbard was made by Pensilvania Working Home for the Blind (PWH stamp on the throat) in the late 1960th-early 1970th. The unpainted “gun-gray” steel throat is stamped USM8A1 / PWH on the front side; web hanger is excellent with some minor oxidation around brass snaps and rivets.

This original Vietnam War era unused Imperial M7 bayonet and PWH M8A1 composition scabbard are in excellent overall condition and 100% serviceable still. Not cleaned or tampered with in any way, 100% original “as is” condition.  I have a few more Vietnam War fighting knives and bayonets, as well as several scarce WW1 and WW2 American and European fighting daggers, bayonets and trench knives available for sale – please take a look in our Militaria section.
