I did not see this posted on Arfcom, but I found out Gary M. Cunningham, author of U.S. Knife Bayonets & Scabbards, passed away on April 14, 2017. I did not know him personally, but did exchange e-mails several times over the years. He was always happy to help fellow collectors with questions. He will be missed. I do not know the cause of death, but he had been having health issues the past couple of years. If you only want one book on US bayonets, especially that fit the M-16/AR series, I recommend his second edition of the above book (the one with an orange cover with full color photos).

I do not think he posted on AR15.com, but he was active on the CMP discussion boards regarding bayonet topics.

May he rest in peace. We've lost a few noteworthy military historians recently. I'll need to find his book.

One bump for the night crew.
