The M9 Bayonet was the first multi-purpose knife that was adopted by the US Military that could also be used as a bayonet. The M9 started a trend in bayonet design and development that has continued to advanced designed like the USMC OKC3S bayonet which doubles as a Marine fighting knife. Tthe M9 has seen service and deployment in 13 national police and military agencies around the world and is still in use today by the US military.
The M9 bayonet is, at its heart, a bayonet intended for use alongside the AR-15 rifle platform. As noted, it is much more than a bayonet, also suitable for use as an edged melee weapon, general field use, cutting wires and sawing. Surprisingly, the M9 bayonet is also compatible with any Mossberg 590 Special Purpose shotgun.
The M9 bayonet offered here is a Taiwanese version of the M9 bayonet that seeks to replicate the current design as closely as possible, and is easily attached to the bayonet lug on any AR-15, M16 or M4 carbine. It is characterized by a stainless steel blade that measures approximately 7 inches in length. The uniquely designed blade come pre-sharpened, and features a serrated "saw-back" spine used for sawing alongside traditional serrations on one quarter of the edge. When combined with its ergonomic, thermoplastic grip, the bayonet measures approximately 12 inches in length.
Also included with each M9 bayonet is a scabbard that can be configured with the blade to form a pair of wire cutters. This heavy-duty, synthetic scabbard features snap fasteners designed to secure the bayonet as well as a metallic belt clip that offers easy transport. Also noteworthy is the inclusion of a pistol magazine pouch that offers users the ability to carry a single, standard-capacity pistol magazine.
