US Model M6 Bayonet
for the M14 Rifle

This bayonet was designed to fit the US M14 Automatic Rifle in 1957 and was mainly used during the Vietnam conflict. It is very similar to the US M5-A1 Bayonet with large push-button, but the M6 bayonet utilizes a muzzle-ring where the M5-A1 does not.

Blade is unmarked, but underneath the cross-guard is US M6, along with a maker's name.
Black plastic grips, iron mounting (steel), with steel Parkerized blade.

Scabbard is olive-drab fiberglass body with steel throat and drag. Throat is stamped USM8A1 over maker.
