    Hi, I have a M9 bayonet made by Lan-Cay in 95 and it has the letter M stamped on butt. Any ideas what this may be please?

    Well... What do you want to know? There is a massive amount of knowledge here on this forum.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that it's an M9 bayonet made by Lan-Cay with the letter M stamped on its butt. ;)

    What specifically are you asking? The M9 bayonet is a reasonably stout 7" knife produced by a series of companies (in your case LanCay, later restyled to Lan-Cay). IIRC, the blades are 420HC. They're super common (I see them a bunch on gun show knife tables, for example) and can be purchased quite inexpensively.

    evilgreg summed it up. Now go stick it on the front of an AR15, and rock on.

    I've been considering adding a Lan Cay to my bayonet collection. I am courious what the "m" is for, myself. Keep in mind that the M9 is an "assembled" knife. You may have a "Franken-knife" because many parts interchange between brands. Who knows how many times that knife's been apart.

    M7's I know, M9's, not so much.
