MidwayUSA Customers will love these vintage M4 Bayonets for the U.S. M1 Carbine and the M8A1 Scabbard. These bayonets have been paired with an M8A1 scabbard. Manufactured in the late ’60s through early '70s by one of two companies from Stamford, CT - Conetta or Bren-Dan, these bayonets entered the Army’s supply chain via the Sacramento Army Depot and later sent to Italy, where they stayed until early this year, when they were repatriated to the U.S.
Patterned off the 2nd production run design these M4 Bayonets feature two-piece plastic grips for increased corrosion resistance/longevity and a wider crosspiece. The M4 bayonet features a 6.75” parkerized blade and a 4.25” handle. Total overall length is 11.75”.
The M8A1 scabbards are marked PWH and can be traced back to the Pennsylvania Working Home for the Blind. PWH assembled approximately 4 Million scabbards for the military. From PWH they were shipped to the Red River Army Depot in Texas, and later were shipped to Italy, to be coupled with the bayonets.
The M8A1 Scabbard is comprised of a 5.5” belt loop with single retention snap and a 7.5” fiberglass scabbard body with re-enforced tip. The tip of the fiberglass body is drilled to allow for a leg tie. Exciting deals like this are rare. Take home an M4 Bayonet and M8A1 Scabbard Today!
