I do not have many M7s, but of the ones I have, there are no screws that have straight sides like the one you show. They may be out there though.
Hi, I'm quoting myself, because sometime after my comment, I acquired a Colt/Milpar which has the taller screws with parallel sides as shown by PaulS in posts #39 and 40.

DeltaRecon226- Milpar had contracts for M7s in 1964. 1966, & 1967. They went out of business in 1969, so the PWH M8A1 scabbards are correct for the Vietnam era bayonets. From Gary Cunningham's bayonet book. SKIP

Columbus Milpar made a wide variety of products. We tend to focus on bayonets and knives, well that's the name of our sub-forum. Milpar got out of the business of making items with blades circa 1969, but we shouldn't confuse that with them actually going out of business at that time.

I really have very little information in regards to Columbus Milpar. I suspect that if anyone accumulated much in the way of facts about them it was Gary Cunningham.
Besides knives and bayonets, I know they made flight helmets for pilots, both winged aircraft and helicopters, also cluster bombs.
At least during the late 60's, and possibly earlier they were a subsidiary of the Whittaker Corporation who had over a hundred acquisitions.
This is a cage code assigned to Columbus Milpar
Perhaps someone maybe able to use it to track down some more information about their history.
