Gun Show find.

Hello all,

While digging through a junk box at a local gun show I stumbled across what appears to be an original Aerial M6 Bayonet. It was in the bottom of the box in a US M8A1 scabbard. I am hoping someone can help me authenticate it and tell me i got a steal of a deal. If more pictures are needed please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Looks appropriate to me. Looks to have good vintage to it as well.

I know what you mean... here lately it seems as if everyone wants 10 prices for everything they have to sell... there was another bayonet in the box I should have snatched up as well... but i wasn't sure at the time if it was what I thought it was... the second bayonet looked like a poly tech legend ak bayonet but i talked my self out of buying it... then i get home and it looked identical to some of the ones listed on the ak files...but i am super happy with my find...

As has already been said, it appears to be a real Arial in very good condition. It is the more rare of the M14 bayonets and yours does appear to be in nice condition.

Do yourself a favor and no longer put it in the scabbard, the more you take it in and out the more wear and thus you lower it's value.

If you take the hand guards off I can tell you with certainty if it is in fact the real deal.

Your scabbard is also legit!
