Quick Overview

Made in 1961 at Arsenale Esercito Torino (Turin Army Arsenal) this bayonet is in very good condition with minimal wear to the blued finish, or marks to the plastic grips. The blueing on the blade has a reddish hue. The grip scales are the brown plastic type most common on Italian M4 bayonets.

The USA provided 146,863 M1 Carbines to Italy between 1950 and 1963 under the Military Assistance Program. The M1 Carbine had a lengthy service life in Italy, well into the 1990s.

Italy produced M4 bayonets between 1955 and 1960. Most were equipped with brown plastic grips made to mimic leather grip of US wartime examples. The crosspiece on Italian M4 bayonets has a different profile than US M4 production variants.
