The M7 Bayonet

I was doing some work on a few rifles and I ran across a few bayonets I like to keep around. I’m not a knife or bayonet collector, but I have a couple of examples of the US M7 bayonet. This bayonet was made for the M16 rifle but can be used on several other guns as well. The M4 will accept the M7 as well as the Mossberg 590.

The first was made by Imperial Knife Company and rides in a US M8A1 scabbard which is marked PWH.

The second bayonet was made by BOC or Bauer Ord. Corp. and is in the later M10 scabbard.

These bayonets while interesting are not particularly valuable and can be picked up for under $50 dollars. If you have a AR that has a lug on it, I highly suggest you pick one up. They are cool to have around; and as far as bayonet prices go these days, are still affordable.

Most rifles we have in the armory that will accept a bayonet, have a bayonet with it. Why? Because we think it mates well with the gun and is a nice accessory to have.
