Auction has ended.
This is an original bayonet for an M-16. It is later manufactured and doesn't appear to have ever been used. There are some scratches in the original finish of the blade from going into the sheath.
This bayonet was taken to The Tin Soldier, at 222 Vernon Street in Downtown Roseville, for authentication. The Tin Soldier has been in the war memorabilia business for 33 years and is well qualified to authenticate items like this. If we say in the description that it is Authentic, we are relaying Ken, from The Tin Soldier’s opinion, which we believe is correct. Each item presented is believed to be authentic unless otherwise stated.
