Brand new USMC Multipurpose Bayonet for the M16 or M4, made by Ontario Knife Company in the USA.
The USMC MB is dual purpose, to be used as a weapon-fixed bayonet for the M-16 and M-4 rifles, and as a hand-to-hand fighting knife.
The Multipurpose Bayonet System consists of two components: the bayonet and the scabbard. The bayonet measures 13 1/4-in. overall and features an 8-in. blade and full tang construction. The clip point blade, made from 0.20-in. thick 1095 steel, is 1 3/4-in. deep and has a sharpened false edge. Aggressive serrations are honed into the blade nearest the cross-guard to assist in cutting. The bayonet’s handle is made from flexible thermoplastic elastomer, with an ergonomically designed texture for better handling. An indexing point molded into the handle is embossed with the Marine Corps’ Eagle, Globe and Anchor.
The scabbard is made from a thermoplastic elastomer and includes Modular Light Weight Load Bearing Equipment (MOLLE) system compatible webbing hangars. A ceramic-coated aluminum honing rod is integrated into the back of the scabbard. All of the scabbard components and the bayonet handle are being produced in Coyote Brown for improved camouflage when used with the Marine Corps combat utility uniforms and equipment. The MB scabbard has a quick release mechanism that allows the bayonet and scabbard to be easily detached from the load bearing equipment.
