i got this bayonet today at a gun shop that me and my grandpa sometimes go to. It was a really good price so i figured i should buy because i didnt think i would find another one in this condition for a good price. Its a 16 inch Oneida with an Mk2 scabbard. Feel free to make any comments.

Very nice Oneida Bayonet. One of the more difficult makers to find that haven't been cut down.

 

Great find.

I agree, great find, tough to find in this condition. Congrats

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after. Let me know if you have something you want to part with.

Nice job. You were smart to buy it when you saw it. I've gone back to purchase something only to find it gone too many times. Also, congrats for studying and knowing what you saw. Most important, enjoy the time with your gramps!

Very nice. A lot of the nice 16 inch blades are found in USN scabbards, possibly because the Navy did not go through the shortening program to speak of - and the scabbards were surplus after the Mark 1 bayonets were surplussed. Although a lot of these were undoubtedly matched up long after they left military hands, it is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that this happened to some extent while still in service.

Check to see how many "flaming bombs" you have. My OL has one on the sharp side of the blade and on the cross guard.
