  1. My Blue Sky M1 Garand was purchased in the late 80s, but was marked on the gas tube, not the barrel. Changed the gas tube. Now I have an "original" GI M1 rifle. Marv
  2. mohawkALSE, Thanks for the clarification. Good information. As you explained, the last line of my label would be classified as "MILITARY METHOD & DATE OF UNIT PRESERVATION". Thanks Marv
  3. Hi Folks, I did not want to distract from Bobcat87 and Casca174's fine conversation about the OKC 3S prototypes, so I thought it better to simply start a new thread. Casca174 mentioned the OKC M10. The M10 designation is on the packaging I bought in 2009. At the time, no one knew why or what the "M10" meant. Now I'm hearing things like "mass reduced scabbards" being issued. I have never opened the package, because I thought it was a regular OKC 3S bayonet. Gary Cunningham indicated that the commercial sale bayonets and the military contracts were labeled exactly the same. Can
  4. It is with levity in my voice that I say, she should be happy to be a descendant of a Union soldier, WE WON! You should be happy too, because trying to find a true confederate sword is nearly impossible.
  5. A handle from the door frame of Saddam's palace?!?!?!!! WOW! That is so cool! Thanks for showing us, and thanks for your service. Marv
  6. Hello, Since you have a Detroit throat and also a Detroit body, there is no reason to think that it's a fantasy piece. First, measure the length of the plastic body from the base of the metal. Your picture appears to look a little longer than normal which is 9 1-2 to 9 3/4 inches long. If you want to argue that this IS a cut down scabbard, there are not many ways to argue against it. 1. You have a Detroit metal throat. That means there is no production number, i.e. B 2/9 N. etc. Therefore there is no way to exclude this scabbard from being a legitimate cut down.
  7. I second that! But I just realized that I have a photo of a dual marked UFH 1905, but can't read the date on the one side (I didn't bit high enough). Marv
  8. Hi, I noticed that there is not very much action on this post, so I'll offer the only thing I have. It is from Camillus, but it's not very detailed. Marv
  9. Thanks for the heads up. Do they all have pinched tip covers like this one? Marv
  10. I have a document that I probably got from this forum that shows the original adopted 1957 "MC-1 HOOK BLADE-SNAP BLADE POCKET KNIFE". In the complete document there is a typical poor photostat picture of the MC-1 and it shows both pins through the handles. I really don't see how your pictured knife would function properly with only one pin. The seller says it works. My Schrade/Walden MC-1 has an even more aggressive "jigged bone" appearance. Certainly more than the Camillus, or Smyth/Logan. The one on the bottom is the Colonial 724. Also, I wanted to point out that the markin
  11. That's really interesting. I saw your post this morning and went to the Dupage Trading site. Of course they were sold out. As you know, the information about these VIZ scabbards is scarce. It is quite odd that the VIZ scabbards would come out in 1962 and 1963 without anyone noticing. That's a year before the first M7 contract with Milpar. Before that, the Colt supplied M7s were used which had their own scabbards. The DT site also showed dates of 1967 -68, but did not mention which manufacturers were available. Do you think all of them were VIZ? Thanks for showing them. Marv
  12. That's one of the early ones. The M-9 mark was apparently "not the official designation". It's the first contract which was completed June 2000. One thing that's interesting. It's not the funky lime green of the first contract M-9s.(unless the camera is playing tricks with the lighting) Marv
  13. One thing I did not mention, 9 years ago, is that the screw is totally non-magnetic. Marv
  14. That's a beauty! The scabbard is in great shape too. They look good together. Marv
