    Default Odd U.S. M4 bayonet

    Hi, mates !

    A collectors mate of mine received this, U.S. M4. -bayonet, manufactured by UTICA.
    Scabbard throat stamped:
    U.S.M8
    B.M.CO.


    The sheath is, obviously, overpainted in olive-green, (looks "old" -made).
    The pommel seemīs overpainted in, kinda, "steel-blue".

    Thereīs also a marking on the bayonet throat:
    I
    BN
    2


    Yes, I know, itīs a .30 caliber Garand M1 carbine -bayonet!
    IMO, this bayonet was in use later in Korea, maybe, in NAM, also.
    Any, further, opinions welcome !

    Thx. in advance,
    R.

    I see nothing odd other than the addition paint and agree that it saw post WWII service. The bayonet itself is in great shape for something that likely had a long service life.
