This is a black Buck 188 waffle style handle grip for the M9 bayonet. Genuine Buck manufacture, new old stock. The grip has some color "swirling", and it looks like the colors did not mix well enough when it was molded. Made from the same mold that the green Phrobis military grips were made from. It will also fit Phrobis, and Ontario M9 bayonets and probably the M9 imports as well. The standard M9 blades, pommels, tangs, and hand guards will fit right onto this handle. USA Made.
Item pictured is one of several for sale. The one you will get is as described and pictured.
Note: since the grip has never been installed, it is tight fitting on the blade and cannot easily be pushed on by hand. It may require light tapping with a plastic hammer to seat it onto the back of the blade. It is recommended to install the handguard, then the tang first. Fold up some old towels and place them onto a block of wood to protect the tip of the blade. Then place the knife tip onto this, slide the grip over the tang (while aligning the slots in the grip with the blade), and tap it with the rubber hammer. This should seat the grip onto the blade then the pommel and screw can be installed.
