I bought one of these Ontario, Made in the USA M9 bayonets and it was Brand New in the wrapper. Ontario is a supplier to our military. This bayo is perfect and is the latest generation with the improved flat grind blade for more strength. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was wrapped in protective paper inside a sealed plastic bag with the code numbers, NSN. You'll never find a better price on 'NEW' M9's of current issue.
