Since I know next to nothing about bayonet’s, this is just a general question for the knife experts out there. I’m looking for a Vietnam era M7 bayonet with an M8A1 scabbard, but is there a way to date them??? I’ve looked here on the forum and on Ebay, but every one I see is undated. I’m trying to find an early war M7 bayonet and scabbard, and I’d like to find one dated sometime between and However, how do you tell the difference between one made on from one made in ??? Sean-They weren’t dated.

Basically from BOC, Conetta, and Milpar are plentiful, and you can get mint ones in the wrappers. First of all I am not an expert, and every time I think I am, I regret it. That said, there isn’t a real reliable way to date M7 bayonets, however, if you want to be sure that your bayonet is a Viet Nam era bayonet, then get a Milpar marked M7.

The M7 has the same two-lever locking mechanism as the M4, that connects to a lug on the M16 rifle’s barrel. The M7 differs from M6 bayonet for the M14 rifle.

The M7’s release mechanism is on the pommel , while the M6 has a spring-loaded lever near the guard that when depressed releases the bayonet.

One edge is sharpened its full length while the opposite side of the blade has approximately 3 inches sharpened.

William Humes’. After the M was fully approved by the US Military in and massive production began, the M7 was slightly redesigned with a two piece finely checkered removable black plastic handle held on to the tang by two machine screws, all metal parts were Parkerized, the cross guard was made a little wider with manufacturers stamping their maker marks and US M7 onto them, and the pommel was now peened onto the tang.

All of the Vietnam Era manufacturers, with the exception of Imperial Schrade Corporation, used what is referred to as a slotted tang, which has two screw holes and two elongated slots. Imperial, as well as Ontario Knife Company and General Cutlery Corporation used the solid tang, which only had two screw holes through the tang. In a letter dated September 13, , Mr. Robert E. Roy of Colt Industries wrote “The numbers that you have seen stamped on the blades are not license numbers.

They are the part number of that particular bayonet. Part number is the standard pattern of the M7 bayonet which we have been furnishing since the early ‘s. They have been made by a variety of manufacturers, but in many cases there are no identifying marks to indicate who the manufacturer is. The Milpar Colt stamped blade versions are somewhat rare and I have not been able to locate production numbers for this particular version. Imperial Colt stamped blades had approximately 30, produced and are fairly common and easily gotten for one’s collection.

Roy acknowledged in his letter.
