I'm not aware of any M9s that went to the Air Force. You bayonet sounds to me like a 1994 Buck commercial M9.

From Joe Houser


NEVER HAD A CONTRACT WITH THE U.S. AIR FORCE with the BUCK 188 \ Bayonet.

Take care,

That doesn't mean the AF didn't buy any. AF units are free to procure with their credit cards as they see fit. I bought$ 2.1M of gear in 2001 without ever signing a contract.

Airforce-m9

Rumlover is correct. I worked USAF Security mobility and we purchased several Buck 188\bayonet in 1996. It was direct purchase by the unit I was in.
