I personally aquired this bayonet while deployed to Northern Iraq during OIF1. The bayonet was legally purchased and legally brought back from Iraq. I do not know the age of the bayonet. The bayonet and scabbard are in great condition. T is a serial number stamped on the handle (7044290) The bayonet and scabbard have a beautiful red color to them. Please bid with confidence. I will ship the bayonet once payment is varifed. I will only ship to the US. T will be a flat rate of $10.00 shipping added to the winning bid which will include insurance. Thanks.
