5/9/18 - This is an original US M4 bayonet for the M1 Carbine rifle. The bayonet was made during WW2 by Imperial, and is maker stamped on the hand guard. There is also a flaming bomb ordnance stamp. The blade is in great shape with some light scabbard wear and aging, but overall there's no major damage or signs of abuse. The scabbard is excellent. Guaranteed original.
