Default Oh guru's of all things stabby and sharp (bayo question)

I dug what I thought (edit now believe its a Chicom repo) a real M7 bayo from a junk store over the weekend.



It was buried in a wooden crate and considering its in pretty good shape. Not one letter of writing on it however











Now it does fit my A2(ish) clone no problem.



But not the repro scabbard



So without further ado my question is any idea who made this one? And will a real deal M8A1 fit?

Looks longer than a standard M7, the "false edge" or "clip" on the top front edge is much longer than an M7.

No US issue scabbard will fit it.

99% sure it's a Taiwanese. Many of these were imported and sold at surplus stores in the 70's

I remember these at around $15 back in the day.

After comparing it to the photos online I was beginning to lean towards chicom. And your right its just a tad longer than my OKC3S.

Damn it paid $20
