Vietnam War M7 bayonet -1st issue by Bauer Ord Company (BOC) made circa 1965-1975, original M8A1 PWH composition scabbard. Great overall condition, considering the age.
Original Vietnam War era M7 bayonet manufactured by Bauer Ord Company. The M7 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 bayonet is about 11-7/8″ / 30 cm overall; parkerized blade is about 6-3/4″ / 17.2 cm long. The blade is very sharp; the edge appears to be factory original; the tip is intact; the original grind finishing is a bit crooked. Ricasso is unmarked; muzzle ring/guard is stamped US M7 on one side, BOC on the other. Black plastic handle grips are tight and in near-perfect condition; bayonet release mechanism is excellent and 100% functional; all handle parts are solid with no play. Original M8A1 composition scabbard; unpainted “gun-gray” steel throat is stamped USM8A1 / PWH on the front side; web hanger is excellent with no stains, mold, or rust. Scabbard’s steel parts and belt hanger are rust-free as well.
Overall, this Vietnam War M7 bayonet and M8A1 composition scabbard are near-excellent and in 100% serviceable condition. Not cleaned or tampered with in any way, 100% original “as is” condition; spent brass is not included with the lot 😉 We have 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.
