4450.) USMC Bayonet 2000. Here we have the rarest USMC bayonet in existence! This bayonet stirred up quite a bit of controversy when it was selected by the Marines as the front line bayonet for the Corps. With lawsuits and holdups the Eickhorn company filed for bankruptcy and the knife was dropped from the selection. Still it was an official USMC bayonet for a very short time period. Required for an advanced USMC collection, most folks probably never heard of this bayonet.
4451.) Phrobis M9 in a crate. This is not in anyway affiliated with the original Phrobis company. This is a China made piece made for retail sales. Like new in mint condition with original wrapping and oriental newsprint in packing. Blade is made in a 5 ¾ inch length. $250.00

Comes in a glass presentation case with a factory letter signed by Chuck Buck and the correspondence with it. Once in a lifetime chance for this one. $2750.00
4453.) This is the rarest piece I have seen in quite some time. When Phrobis was in development of new products it came to their attention that the standard M9 pistol slide was breaking after some age and heavy firing. They developed a new heat treatment for the slide to eliminate that problem and pitched it to the military. This is one of the trial slides made for the Navy SEAL's testing that Phrobis held at the factory as their sample. Pretty much a one-of-a-kind item, the only one known to still exist. Straight from the office of Mickey Finn. You may never get another chance at one of these. For bragging rights and the coolest desk paper weight in existence.
