I've got a nice M4 second production bayonet for the Carbine marked Bren-Dan. This company in Stamford, CT was contracted by the gov. to produce these in the 50's into the 60's. What's great is that Stamford is my hometown and I know exactly where that building is. A little piece of history and hometown memorabilia.

I have a nice one also.

What little I can find on the Bren-Dan production information is that it was possible a later contract connected to the Conneta Company that also produced the M4 in Stamford.
Being a hometown boy would you know any more info?

Thanks,
bonnie

I don't have any production numbers but I believe the guy's first name is Peter Conetta - He was the owner of Bren-Dan. Bren-Dan and Conetta I am told were out of the same building. It's located at the corner of Taft and Sunnyside Ave. in Stamford, CT

A little late to this thread i know. but the Conetta/Bren-Dan M4 bayonets were the least produced of all the U.S. M4's both being made by Conetta Machine & Tool Bren-Dan was across the street from Conetta.

I grew up 2 blocks from American Fork and Hoe. Have a bayonet and a hatchet made there during the war.
