    SKENNERTON states in British & Commonwealth Bayonets that the sockets were made at ARMSCOR's subsiduaries or subcontractors and the blades were spare S1 Uzi SMG bayonet blades originally manufactured in Belgium however it is possible that some newly made blades were produced on ARMSCOR contracts.
